BUMC members travel to Angola and El Salvador

Joanne Griffin and Gloria Edwards  being commissioned by Bishop Oliveto at our annual Conference meeting.
ANGOLA
Gloria Edwards is joining a team of three other women going to Angola in October.  The group is organized by the Florida Conference, and includes two women from there and two women from the Yellowstone Conference.  
While in Angola they will spend time in Quessia Mission Station, see our friends Ken Koome, Kutela Kutembo (the agriculturalist at Quessua), and Rev. Andre Cassule as well as other pastors in East Angola Conference.  They plan to strengthen the personal connections between our conferences, do some medical work, some agricultural work, and visit churches and pastors in the area.
To offer items of support this team is collecting basic first aid supplies such as gauze pads, tape, Band-Aids in a variety of sizes and Neosporin.
They are also collecting brightly colored girls underwear in sizes 10, 12 and 14 to use for sewing and hygiene classes.
This mission group will be gone about two weeks, and they thank you for your prayers of support.
 
EL SALVADOR
A team of 10 people from BUMC are traveling to San Salvador, El Salvador in October, too!  This team is headed by John and Vickie Wilkinson, who have worked in the Siloe area for many years.
This group will be working at a school in the city, organizing a job fair to help students see the possibilities available after graduation, and working at a very remote school on an island.
They are collecting basic school supplies to take with them.  Your continued prayer for safety, wisdom, endurance, and good health for the team is much appreciated.
Donations for either trip may be left in the narthex.  There is a giant, grey “school locker” for school supplies for El Salvador, and a red duffle bag for underwear and first aid supplies for Angola.
