Message from DS Foster

Good afternoon excellence Focused Pastors,

I was recently informed by the General Board of Global Ministries that we will receive a missionary to work in our district to strengthen Latino/ Hispanic ministries in our area.

I’m asking that the churches that are able, would be able to support this mission with your financial commitment by July 1.

GBGM is providing some funds, however, there is a shortfall of 16-20k.

If you are able and willing to support this district missionary project, please email me no later than May 1st.

Thank you for your prayerful consideration.

Blessings Always,

Dr. Andrew L. Foster, III
District Superintendent/Servant Leader
“Excellence-Focused East District”

Numbers 6:24-26
