Welcome to June
We are halfway through 2021! It’s so nice to see how life has changed, transformed and adapted this last year or so. Through it all, the United Methodist Women have continued their support of the many missions
helping women, children and youth.
I came across this U.M.W Mission Witness submitted by Courtney, a Transitional Housing participant,
Damus Wesley Community Center, Mobile, AL:
My daughter and I were living in our car for a month after being evicted. I was pregnant and in and out of the hospital, so I couldn’t work. I had no where to go. I felt really low, especially for my daughter because she had to go through this. Sybil Smith Family Village gave me a new start and I am now in the Goodwill Easter Seals GED program. I am going to school to become an EMT. That’s my dream. This is home. I like coming to our apartment, but most of all, I love when my daughter says, “Let’s go home mama!”
Thank you! Stay well and God Bless! Donna Petersen U.M.W President
“At the start of a new year, most of us would like to see the whole journey that lies ahead, and yet God oftentimes lights only enough of the way for us to see the very next step. We can move into the darkness trusting that God will continue to light the way and feeling God’s presence beside us as we walk in faith.” - by Emily Everette, global missionary from Houston, serving in Brazil. These words seem truer today than any time in my life. So much of our life did seem to be pretty predictable; such that we might have even said it was our doing, our planning, and our individual and or group’s actions that were at work day in and day out. Thanks be to God for being with us, helping us through and leading the way!
