Our church supports our current missionaries, the Rev. Charles Mulemena and Janet Horman. We take an offering each year to support the missionaries and hope to raise $2,500 per missionary. Please watch the video below to learn the amazing ways the missionaries of the United Methodist Church are working throughout the world. And below the video, be sure to read what the two missionaries our local church sponsors are doing specifically.
Charles is a native of Zambia, Africa, serving in northern Belize. We received this email from him in August 2019 describing his work:
Barbra, the kids, and I are doing very well and we are so thankful to God that we are finally here in Belize, especially that we are now working within the Methodist Church. We arrived safe and sound on July 30 (my Birthday) and the Methodist Church community here is very welcoming, they have taken us in and we feel like home already.
I am Pastoring 2 congregations namely Corozal Methodist Church and Libertad Methodist Church which have a distance of 7 miles between them, so I preach in those 2 Church communities every Sunday morning. I am also in-charge of the spiritual formation for the Methodist Schools in these 2 respective communities, and we love it.
Though we are just now settling in and learning some of our ministry opportunities & challenges, I can assure you that there are great opportunities for mission teams here, and so I invite you to feel free to mobilize mission teams to come. Ministry opportunities for mission teams include; teaching/education, VBS, construction of Church buildings, leadership training, Capacity building, evangelistic, IT works, medical & health screening, community empowerment, etc.
In addition, the Methodist Church here has structures that are helpful for in hosting VIM teams. We are stationed in the northern part of Belize in a town called Corozal, just about 8 miles to the Mexican boarder.
Once again, thank you so much for your dedication and passion for missions.
With love and prayer,
Rev. Charles Mulemena, Global Ministries Missionary – UMC, Pastor & Trainer
