Sending missionaries to the "ends of the earth" sometimes means they come here to Louisiana. Three missionaries will be itinerating through the Louisiana Annual Conference this summer and fall. They could be a guest at your church! They are:
Marjorie Hurder -
Marjorie is completing a two-year assignment in Utah as a US2. She has been dividing her service time between organizing a food pantry and organizing community advocacy programs. Marjorie is returning to her home in Baton Rouge for a summer break before continuing her education at Wesley Seminary in Washington D.C. in the fall. She is available from the end of July to Aug. 22 to Wesley Foundations and young adult groups to connect those hearing a call to mission to our Global Misssion opportunities. Contact Marjorie at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org for scheduling info.
Marsha Alexander -
Marsha serves as the director of Asbury College on the island of Anda in the Phillipines. Asbury College is a United Methodist-related school that begins with elementary instruction and extends to college-level instruction. She will spend the next three months here in the states, visiting families and telling her stories to congregations. She will be in Louisiana Sept. 8 - 19. Her visit will start in the Lake Charles area at University UMC. She will be available to other churches in the conference. To schedule Rev. Alexander, please contact Rev. Ann Sutton at email@example.com.
Joseph and Marilyn Chan -
There is a special place in the heart of every Louisianian who has ever been to Cambodia for Joseph and Marilyn Chan. Joseph serves as a church developer and district superintendent. Marilyn serves as the Director of United Methodist Women in Cambodia. They will be in Louisiana Sept. 12-19. Ken Musick is coordinating their visit and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hosting a Global Missionary in your church or home is a little like hosting an apostle. Without traveling far, it is a way to touch what God is doing on the other side of the world.
