During REACH 2015 we had missionaries and mission agencies representing Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and Ends of the Earth. As a part of REACH, we asked the missionaries/agencies keep us up-to-date on what God is doing in their part of the world. Check out what's happening:
The International Leadership Institute - Eli Suddarth in Cameroon
UCUMC has begun a partnership with the International Leadership Institute that started from REACH 2015. This year we sent Eli Suddarth and Lindsay Gallegly to Cameroon to be a part of training for church planters in Cameroon, Africa.
The Fletcher Family - Ecuador (One Mission Society):
From our REACH Faith Promises, we are now supporting the Fletcher family as they begin their new adventure in Ecuador with One Mission Society. They are planning to have enough funding to go to language school in April. Read more about their calling and their journey by checking out their website www.fletchersteps.org.
