ZOE Empowers - Virtual Mission Trip

Conference and District staff -  Last month, Bishop Johnson introduced us to Gaston Warner, one of the directors of the ZOE Empowers, a fifteen-year-old relief mission with connections to some of our United Methodist friends in Raleigh, North Carolina.  ZOE works among the world’s impoverished and at-risk children, offering both relief and life-skills training which moves children & youth toward self-sufficiency.  An introduction to its incredible ministry in Africa and Asia is available (free) though a ZOOM “international mission trip” across the mornings of June 22-24.  Please promote this opportunity across our four EPA Districts, as you are able. ~ Steve Morton, North District Superintendent
