Willie Berman, General Board of Global Missions missionary to Mexico and director of the Manos Juntas ministry, will be traveling through Louisana this summer, visiting local churches. Berman is currently working on his schedule.
“Border Backpacks” is a program of the Methodist Border Friendship Commission. Berman invites local churches to be a part of this valuable ministry that helps underserved students on both sides of the Mexican/US border. If churches have members, especially teachers, that would like to collect school year left overs or new items, Willie will be happy to collect them as he travels throughout the state.
To coordinate supply pickup, Berman can be reached at (956) 648-8712. Susan Hellums, Border Area Mission Coordinator, can be reached at (956) 648-8509. Rev. Ricky Willis is scheduling Willie’s visits within the conference and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
