It’s been way too long since the last time I posted an update. I have been going non-stop since I stepped foot in the United States at the end of January. I haven’t really gotten a chance to slow down, breath, or process all that I’ve experienced in the last two years. I did however get the chance to speak to a number of AMAZING churches over the last month who support the missions of the United Methodist Church. Whether for five minutes or 30 minutes I really enjoyed being able to connect with several congregations from Texas to California including:
St. Luke ‘Community’ United Methodist Church
First United Methodist Church Alvord
Holman United Methodist Church
Rosewood United Methodist Church
First United Methodist Church Pasadena
Faith United Methodist Church
St. Marks United Methodist Church
I’m now officially in New York City for phase two of my mission commitment. I start my new assignment as Mission Communicator in the communications department of Global Ministries tomorrow morning. I will also be working with Church of the Village (‘a Progressive United Methodist Church’) as the coordinator of community engagement.
I’m sooooo excited for this next year and a half of mission, I’m happy to be in a position to continue reaching out and connecting with churches and people. I’m anxious to soak in all there is to learn in this new season. Ultimately, I’m just really happy.
I’m a (young adult) missionary in Manhattan! Stay tuned :)
