Our Mission and Outreach Opportunities
Board of World Mission Update
Ukraine Refugees
and Flooding in Honduras
July 13, 2022
The Board of World Mission takes this opportunity to thank the
many congregations and individuals who have donated to our
Moravian Disaster Relief Fund over these past few months. We
have raised over $300,000 (US) to assist congregations in the
Czech Republic and Germany as they extend hospitality to
refugees fleeing violence in Ukraine. Your donations have helped
provide housing, food, and critical supplies to folks who are in
crisis. It has assisted one congregation in helping relocate a
primary school from Kyiv to their town. Your donations have also
helped congregations in places like Herrnhut to provide language
classes, meals, and assistance in finding housing.
We look forward to assisting additional schools in the Czech
Republic to welcome refugees into their student bodies. We now
know that some refugees are making their way to the United
States and Canada. Moravian congregations in Southern
Wisconsin are now connecting with Ukrainian families who were
hosted by Moravians in the Czech Republic and are being settled
for up to two years in the Madison, WI area. The BWM can help
your congregation if it wants to get involved with hosting refugee
families.
Recently we have been made aware of flooding in the La
Mosquitia region of Honduras that has severely impacted the
essential crops of beans and rice. The Board of World Mission is
planning on sending money to help purchase emergency supplies
of food and to assist in planting subsequent crops.
For further information, go to www.moravianmission.org or
contact the Rt. Rev. Chris Giesler at chris@moravianmission.org.
US citizens can send checks to: Board of World Mission, 1021
Center Street, Bethlehem, PA 18018. You may also donate online
at http://moravianmission.org/give/ and click on the green
“Give” button at the top of the page. Please indicate that your gift
is for “MDR.”

     A Special Thank You

Hello Church Family,

 

July 24th and July 25th Troop 94 and myself constructed 1 paver patio with 2 benches and another paver patio with a bike rack for my Eagle Scout project. I chose this project as a thank you to my church family for supporting me throughout the years and for buying popcorn.

 

At this time, I would like to give an update of the project. The paver patio project is almost complete. The only work left is the engravings on the bench backs. I’m asking one last time for donations and pepperoni roll orders.  Pepperoni Roll orders will be taken until August 9th and donations will be accepted through August 23rd.  The project cost was approximately $2,475.00

 

Thank you for your donations and orders from your future First Moravian Eagle Scout.

Garrett Wassem
