October Mission Project:
AFGHAN REFUGEES U.S. RESETTLEMENT
Our October Mission Project provides humanitarian relief and assists Afghan
refugee resettlement in the U.S. With the tumultuous end of the 20-year
Afghan war, an estimated 50,000 Afghans are arriving in the U.S. United
Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) will partner with Church World Service
(CWS) to help them make a fresh start. Church World Service is one of nine
US. resettlement agencies and works in 21 offices in 17 states. The United
Methodist Church is one of its 37 member churches. CWS staff have been
deployed to designated military bases to assist with immediate processing of
arrivals. The CWS network will support these families with housing,
employment and other social services. UMCOR is in discussion with CWS about
helping with temporary housing for Afghan refugees. Your financial help is
needed. Please write a Wesley UMC check with the memo Afghan Refugees. Cash
donations can be given in the blue mission envelopes found in the pew rack.

As always, we thank you for your support!
