Missions Spotlight

North Monroe International Missions supports, teaches, and encourages so many around the world.

North Monroe continues to send money for COVID Relief. 
Myanmar- Most recently, North Monroe sent money to Myanmar to purchase vitamins & soap for prisoners. Pastor Daniel leads a weekly bible study with the prisoners. This will open up new avenues and doors to the least of these. What an opportunity!

Otherwise, COVID cases are rising in Mandalay and many areas are experiencing lock down.
Uganda- Pastor Patrick continues to minister to the people. Food is essential during this time. Please pray for his wife Esther’s health.

Pastor James continues to provide food for many families in Lira, Uganda.
Rwanda- This week, we sent money to provide a set of clothes, shoes and a year’s worth of medical insurance for 45 orphans. 
God is preparing hearts all across the globe. We are called to “Go Make Disciples.” We continue to pray for the time we can go and share the gospel, but until God opens that door…God is using North Monroe through giving. Thank you for sharing God’s love ~ Joey Young, International Missions Coordinator
