The Mission Committee Invites You to Meet Our Missionaries
This pandemic has been so difficult for all of us – separating us from our loves ones and all of you. But technology has allowed us to meet online – in our little boxes – and maintain some of our vital connections. The Mission Committee wants to use this technology to connect you with the missionaries and mission partners that you support through your tithes and offerings.
Starting this September 1st and the first Tuesday of subsequent months, you can now tune in to our meetings via ZOOM. You will be able to hear directly from our mission partners about the many ways God is using them to accomplish His will here in Delaware County, in our country and throughout the world. To sign up, go to www.mediapresbyterian.org/events and scroll down to Mission Committee. You will find the link to the Zoom meeting there. Tune in to the meeting from 7 to 7:30, and engage with our partners during the first part of our meeting.
Here is our line up through December:
September 1 – Pastor John Clifford, the Director of The Greenhouse Project, will tell us about his work living side-by-side with those he serves in Chester. The project provides ongoing and follow along support to those in recovery through a mentoring approach. You may remember John as a staffer from City Team.
October 6 – David Powell, a founding member of Lifetime Wells International, will tell us about his life saving work building wells and saving lives in Ghana and Tanzania. Over 100,000 people now have clean drinking water and 2,500 wells are now pumping away. Some of us remember that first well! (Link will be posted one week in advance)
October 27 – Please note the change in date! Beth McMillen, Executive Director of Compassion Corps, will share their work through the myriad of partnerships they have created in Tunisia, Liberia, Morocco, Uganda and Mali. They are building schools, supporting healthcare clinics, and nurturing orphans. They also produce wonderful coffee by empowering local farmers. Many of us know Beth and her co-founder, Jan Bean.

As we move into 2021, we hope to be able to continue to connect you with our mission partners in distant lands. We are currently trying to set up conversations with those in India, Africa and Europe. I look forward to “seeing” you soon.
