Missions is the way that a church can tithe. We take in tithe but we still need to give back to the Lord and aide in spreading the Gospel; supporting those Christians in other countries and in our own.
CURRENT MISSIONS AND MISSIONARIES
Red Bird Mission – located in Kentucky. The Jacks have both retired but we are currently supporting the mission itself.
James and Bernice Keech – they are home now from serving in Afghanistan. When they visited here they told us they did not say they were Christians while working in that country but that they said they were followers of Jesus. Saying they were Christians could have caused their death.
We are still supporting them. They are now with the General Board of Global Ministries serving as Mission Advocates in the Southeastern Jurisdiction. I hope at some point we can have them back to share with us.

Sierra Leone Initiative and Zimmi UMC (partner church) – we have raised our contribution to the SLI pastor funding to $125 a month from $100. We need to start raising money for Zimmi UMC to help them to be able to start building the church and school on the land we purchased for them.
Dr. Christiana Hena and Healthy Women, Healthy Liberia.
Dr. Chris has lost her father this year. He was 101. She had moved him into her home.
The clinic will have a new name. Under her leadership it has grown and prospered from its beginning in her backyard. It will now be renamed the Waterfield Medical Center. With the opening of HWHL’s new maternity/surgical addition, it will be offering much more than primary health care. It is renamed to reflect the additional services.
St. Andrews donated $2,500 last year to Healthy Women, Healthy Liberia (not Dr. Chris, but her ministry).
