This year we are dedicating our Easter offering to four different areas: educational opportunities for girls in East Angola, financial support of pastors in Cuba, the Methodist Evangelical Seminary in Havana, and fighting human trafficking here in Southwest Florida. All offering placed in Easter envelopes or marked “Easter offering” will go toward these efforts.
This Sunday we focus on education for girls in East Angola. The Florida United Methodist Conference began a partnership in this region in 2003. Educational opportunities have been expanded, especially through the establishment of a boarding house in Quessua, but girls are still not given the same opportunities for cultural reasons. Your contributions will allow our missionaries to keep reaching out and increasing the number of girls in school.
