MISSION TRIPS~

April 9-16, 2016 -- House Building Trip to MEXICO with AMOR ministries.  2016 marked our 10th mission trip to northern Baja California to help build a home for a family in Mexico.  Volunteers traveled by car and camped in a secure campground that is operated by AMOR ministries. 

 
September 2015 - Weed CA helped with repairs from 2014 summer wildfire.

Alabama, Tornado Repair Mission -- Each year Eureka First UMC selects an area of the United States that has experienced extreme damage from a disaster.  For several years following Hurricane Katrina we worked with the United Methodist Recovery effort in Louisiana.  In 2012 we traveled to Northern Alabama to help the citizens of Phil Campbell rebuild after a tornado destroyed most of the homes in their small town.

 
 
 
 
SERVING CHRIST IN SOUTH ASIA ~
 

We have received word from Paul, Fabiola, Tobias and Nikolas Drumm that they have found a house to live in and are settling into community life where they are serving Christ in South Asia. The house is two blocks from a beach where the children enjoy playing. It has a big front yard and a little laundry room in back. Clothes are washed in buckets or pails by hand or feet. Fabiola says the children are "the best helpers in the world" with the laundry. The family enjoyed a nice, but "different" Christmas celebration in their new home, and after going to bed early on New Year's Eve were awakened by the sound of firecrackers and music from others celebrating in the area.
