HAITI VOLUNTEERS IN MISSION CONSTRUCTION TEAM

Ile Aux Enfants Haiti Orphanage on Ile Au Vache (Island of the Cows)

We have several long term relationships in Haiti including support of a student, a pastor, and an orphanage.  The children who live at this orphanage range from newborns to older teens. Many have special needs and will likely live here indefinitely. We feel called to assist Mother Flora in any way we can, as she pours her heart out to every child. 

We also sent teams on site.  This costs about $2,000 per team member to accomplish our mission and every dime is raised through awesome friends like you! That figure includes air and ground travel, room and board, meals, supplies and materials for the job, and any tools we may need that are not available in Haiti. You can assist by making a donation to MUMC with "Haiti" in the memo line. Keep us in your prayers too!  You can follow us on Pastor Melany's blog at www.pastormelany.blogspot.com once we leave. 

If you would like to join our team or would just like more info, contact Darryl Chalker, Team Leader, at 517-403-5748 or darrylchalker@yahoo.com or leave your name and number with the church office at 269-781-5107. 

WHITE OAK MISSION TRIP

We have a very long relationship with the people of White Oak, Tennessee.  Our team helps with plumbing, construction, and other home repairs.  Anyone 13 years old or older is invited to be part of this annual mission trip. The cost per person is less than $300.  All members of the team are expected to participate in the fundraisers to pay for the cost of materials and extras on the trip. Some of our fundraisers are candy making, a painting party, and our annual Swiss steak dinner.

Please let us know if you would like to be part of this team. You can call the office at 781-5107 or talk to Max Miller.

PINE RIDGE "RE-MEMBER" MISSION TRIP

Location: Pine Ridge Reservation, South Dakota

Re-Member provides a "service-learning" experience that gives volunteers not only the chance to work across Pine Ridge with their Lakota friends, but the chance to be immersed in the Native American culture. Re-Member believes that forming relationships with the Lakota people and studying their culture and spirituality is as important as the physical work we do.

For more information, see www.re-member.org/

Cost runs approximately $400 per person plus some dinners on the road and two nights at a motel while traveling. Contact Dee Russell at 269-420-0545 or the church office at 269-781-5107.

MIDWEST MISSION DISTRIBUTION CENTER TRIP

Dates: Once each fall       Location: Chatham, Illinois

You are invited to join a team of people that head to Chatham, Illinois, for a mission trip at MMDC. During the mission experience to Midwest, our team will be sorting and packing flood buckets, hygiene, health, and school kits. Other possible jobs include landscaping and building projects. All skill levels are welcome to come.

We will be staying in a comfortable dorm and will be sharing cooking responsibilities. The cost of the missions trip is very reasonable. This is guaranteed to be a heartwarming experience, as you work side-by-side with other churches to prepare and send items to needy areas in the U.S. and around the world.
