A missionary is a person(s) who is sent on a mission, especially one sent to do religious or charitable work in a territory or foreign country.
We believe that all faithful Christians are in real sense missionaries. Those that convey the Good News of God's love and forgiveness to others near and far carry the missionary spirit within them. 

Faith UMC is supporting missionary:


Sandra Kaye Raasch

Serving At: Honduras Mission

Location: Honduras, Latin America and the Caribbean

Home Country: United States of America, North America


Sandra K. Raasch is a missionary with the General Board of Global Ministries of The United Methodist Church serving as coordinator of medical and environmental ministries of the Honduras Mission. Appointed to this post in late 2011, she formerly worked in mission finance in Honduras.


Her role involves coordinating volunteer teams from the United States who work alongside local persons in both physical and spiritual healing ministries, and who seek out solutions to medical and environmental health needs. One objective is to equip Hondurans for leadership in all expressions of the church. Sandra helps Volunteer-In-Mission teams select places of greatest need in keeping with the priorities of the Honduras Mission. She serves as liaison between the teams and the Ministry of Health of Honduras in such matters as getting temporary licenses for medical practice.


Sandra was commissioned as a missionary in 2005. At the time she said: "God has been grooming me for this call all my life by giving me a heart for people, an ability to receive a finance degree, and to participate in mission trips, and by leading me to a church home, where I found Christ and have been able to deepen my walk through Bible study, meeting brothers and sisters in Christ, and finding my spiritual gifts of administration and hospitality."


Sandy was born in Cape Girardeau, Missouri and attended the University of Missouri in Columbia, earning her Bachelor of Science in business administration and finance in 1987. Before beginning her mission service, she owned and managed a business, worked for four different companies in Kansas in supervisory positions, and volunteered for numerous charitable organizations through her church.


Sandy is a member of the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kansas. Her parents, Harold and Becky Raasch, live in Overland Park, Kansas, and also attend the same congregation.
