PUMC Helps Send Mexican Kids to School

One of the ministries we support is a United Methodist Church in La Palmilla, Mexico.  They are a growing church without the financial means to provide the resources needed by their ministry.  For years, we have raised money and sent mission teams to La Palmilla to help them build a new sanctuary.  The construction has finally been completed, and the church dedicated their new sanctuary in 2016. But sending their children to school is another difficulty they have.  In the US we take it for...

Daffodils and Diapers Help Sick and Needy (3/25/18)

The day was Palm Sunday; a special sabbath for celebrating the arrival of our King and Savior into Jerusalem.

Remembering Missionary John Enright (12/26/17)

Long time PUMC’ers probably remember supporting Ken and Loraine Enright during the 1980s (and beyond).  The Enrights were missionaries in Africa, using their airplanes to bring medicine and the Gospel to remote areas in Zaire and the other African countries they ministered to over the years. Ken and Loraine have both passed away, but their son John took up the mantel. Unfortunately, we recently lost John when he was killed in an automobile accident on the day after Christmas (2017).  His...

Churches Band Together- Music for Missions (4/10/16)

Music;  it’s a gift from God.  God gave us music so we could give it back to Him.  We use it to teach, to worship, to praise.  And, we also use it to support our efforts to feed the hungry and to house the poor. On the evening of Sunday April 10, several local Methodist churches got together to present a concert to raise funds for our mission to La Palmilla Mexico.  For many years, the limited financial resources of the church in this town have not been able to reach their boundless love...
