Mission Nugget
Mission Around the World - Philippines
Debbie Mulneix supports the anti-human trafficking work of Samaritana Transformation Ministries in Manila, the Philippines. She assists in the development of the Guest House facilities and in the marketing of livelihood products, such as jewelry, and greeting cards. STM provides a safe, comforting place for women to BE. For the most part, these women have never been in relationships that encourage them to be themselves. They have never known people who accepted them as they are. They have always been “the giver” in relationships, not “the receiver”. They have never had long-term friendships. Samaritana assists these women as they develop many relationships that will last a lifetime, and one that will last through Eternity.

Mission Budget Report
Mission giving for February was $1037. We were able to pay our United Mission Basics of $900 and our $300 contribution for Cameron Community Ministries of $300. This will help them meet a doubling challenge. We would like to send our $600 contribution to Food for the Needy in March. In order to do that, we need to receive an average of $300 per week. Thank you for your generosity.
