The Outreach Team has selected a World Mission Offering mission project for October because it addresses food insecurity outside the U.S.
White Cross funds are used for the Myanmar Medical Care and Food project to fulfill requests for goods and supplies that aid in recovery from devastating events. The Myanmar Baptist Convention (MBC) has mobilized local churches to minister to the needs of the internally displaced people in Myanmar, a disaster-prone region of the world, where the extremely poor are often those least able to recover from overwhelming disaster. They have distributed rice, oil, beans, canned fish, eggs, noodles, and water that helps fight off diarrhea, dehydration, and death.
The MBC plans to raise $11,764 annually for the project, 48% of which is funded for 2023, and the following items are needed.
- $100 provides blankets, mosquito netting and tarps as protection from monsoon rains.
- $250 buys food like rice, vegetables, oil, salt, beans, and sardines.
- $500 equips medical clinics with medications, vitamins, and medical kits.
When you give to White Cross projects to feed refugees, and ensure that they receive Christian hospitality, you are doing these things for God’s glory. Please consider this in your giving to this offering.
