Lenten Offerings 2014

This year’s Lenten Offerings will support the Blackfoot United Methodist Parish (BUMP) in Browning, MT and Helen Sheperd’s missionary work in Mongolia.


BUMP serves the Blackfeet Indian Reservation just east of Glacier National Park.  We have sent mission teams there periodically to help with facilities and programs.  In addition to spiritual work, they have a clothing bank that is open every Wednesday to provide free clothing for an average of 46 adults per week.  This year’s offering will go toward purchase of a new washer and dryer to support the clothing bank.


Mongolia Mission Initiative

Helen Sheperd is a Methodist missionary serving in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia where she is the director of the Grace Hospice homecare program.  She also supports the activities of two mission centers, three worshipping congregations and numerous projects in Mongolia.  In addition, she teaches preschoolers on Sunday morning, leads a weekly Bible study in English for young women, and works with two senior citizen groups that meet at the mission center.  For more information go to www.yacumc.org/pages/detail/63 .
