Mission Trips

Costa Rica Mission Trip

In 2008, a mission team from MUMC had the opportunity to work with Costa Rican Methodists in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica, helping with the construction of a church building and leading a vacation bible school for area children.

In 2010, a second mission team from MUMC worked in Costa Rica again in Siquirres working to lay the foundation for Sunday School classrooms in a small Methodist church there and again leading vacation bible school for area children.

Haiti Mission Trip

Members of Manchaca UMC have been traveling to Haiti on mission since 2005 and the congregation’s support of this mission has been strong and committed.

Marissa Konde, a young adult from our congregation, is raising money to support her plans to go with the Wesley Foundation at Texas Tech University on a mission trip to Haiti in 2016. If you would like to sponsor her trip, please contact the church office.

In Haiti, the team members work with the National Spiritual Council of Haitian Churches (CONASPEH), a Haitian non-governmental organization made up of over 6,700 Christian churches from a multitude of confessions, including Methodists. The team members’ primary focus since 2006 has been medical education and medical support to Haitian doctors and nurses.

A four-member team traveled in late July 2010 for a week long mission, working in four different medical clinics, delivering three pharmaceutical suitcases from Heart to Heart International, plus four suitcases of medical supplies, and purchasing $775 worth of pharmaceuticals in country.
