 GLOBAL MISSION DURING A PANDEMIC 
The COVID-19 pandemic challenges the ways United Methodists usually stay connected in global mission and ministry. Missionary visits, mission trips and face-to-face gatherings are not possible at present; photographers and journalists can’t make field trips. But mission is still happening from everywhere to everywhere. To show how the church continues in God’s mission and how we can remain connected despite adversity, Global Ministries is connecting with faith leaders, health-care workers, disaster response coordinators and missionaries for conversations on “Global Mission during a Pandemic.” 

Beginning tomorrow – Friday, April 3 – join Thomas Kemper, general secretary of Global Ministries, three mornings a week –Monday, Wednesday and Friday – at 9 a.m. (EDT) for 5- to 7-minute conversations showing how we as United Methodist are in mission right now. Thomas introduced this series in a Facebook Live presentation you can access at facebook.com/GlobalMinistries or facebook.com/UMCOR.

The first interview will be with Bishop John Yambasu of Sierra Leone, who is deeply involved in health issues in his country. He will be asked to reflect on the similarities and differences between the West Africa Ebola epidemic of several years ago and the current coronavirus pandemic.
