Christmas Decs 2014- Missionary Tree _IMG_1283Christmas is one of the most holy and anticipated times of the year for Christians all around the world. Similar preparations and traditions, decorations, celebrations, music, worship observances, the giving of gifts, and gathering of families and friends; all of these rituals that mark this important event in the life of our faith are replicated by Christians everywhere.

Our church supports many missionaries who have left the United States to live in countries around the world.  They bring the faith and Good News about Jesus Christ, but they also share in the culture of their host countries.

During this Holy season, please take a moment to remember our missionaries. Pray for them; that God will keep them safe; and grant them His guidance and peace.

Below are updates from some of our missionaries.  Included are their addresses.  Send them  a holiday card or note, or email message.  Remember these missionaries; they need our encouragement and support.


Joy Phillips (Kenya)

Joy Phillips at PUMC on 3/30/14Joy is eager to learn where God will take her next in her new international position as Compassionate Ministries Coordinator. Soon she will be traveling to Egypt with several Africa Regional Directors. They know that Egypt is dangerous, politically complex, and steeped in Islam. Only 3.4% of Egyptians are Christian; and the majority of the worlds unreached people live in that area. Joy dreams about Egypt, and what it would look like if the Kingdom of God were alive there. Joy knows that Christ is already there; and prays that her dreams for Egypt become a reality.
