WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION (WMU)
WMU 2021 Theme:
“Christian Women Working Together on God’s Mission on One Accord”
Acts 1:14, Acts 2:1-3
Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts. Zechariah 4:6
We, the women of New Era District have been praying, and have been successful during the Lord’s work, but there is so much more to be done. What disparity we have in these United States today. People don’t know Christ as their personal savior. We don’t have the institution of the family hardly anymore. Our children are being abused. We must be in the business of reaching out to an unsaved world. We know the spirit of God speaks to us constantly, giving us directions. This is a reminder that all of our work for God depends not on human strength or power or prowess, but upon God’s spirit for fruition.
We are going to go deeper into the work, in God’s vineyard depending on him to bring it into fruition. Even before God created the heavens and the earth, he knew you and me and he chose us! You and I were born because of God’s good pleasure. May the spirit of God abide with you this new year and forever.

The children of Loving Haiti Philadelphia
Church and Orphanage in Pignon, Haiti
Dear NED WMU Sisters.

We thank you for your donations this year and pray that you will continue to support Rev. Francois Romelus and the children at Loving Haiti Philadelphia Baptist Church and Orphanage. Per Rev. Romelus all of the children now have a pair of shoes and they were able to bless others in their area.
Things in Haiti are not good. Here is a portion of the latest email I received from Rev. Romelus on October 26, 2022.

Happy New Year, friends and family!
I hope that you all had a wonderful time celebrating the start of a new year and that you have also had the opportunity to reminisce on the blessings from God in your life last year.
I have been in the Philippines for about 7 months now and I am amazed at how God continues to be so faithful. God is so good, and I am so thankful that He has given me this opportunity to serve in this way. The Lord has answered our prayers for more women to be able to deliver in the center, and we began 2022 with the 30,000 baby delivered at the clinic! It was a sweet moment of God’s faithfulness towards the ministry, and it reminded me that He continues to hear and answer prayers.
I am still in need of monthly financial partners. Would you consider partnering with me as I continue to be equipped to be a missionary midwife?
A gift amount of $25, $50, or $100 a month would give me the freedom to pay for my schooling and living expenses while I’m in the Philippines.
I cannot fulfill what God has called me to do without your love and support! Thank you so much to those who are already giving monthly and helping to make all of this a reality. I’m excited for what God will do this year and I would like to invite you to come alongside me as I continue to live out what God has called me to do. If you would like to partner with me, please visit my giving page www.missiongo.org/townsend to give online, or set up an EFT. You may also give by mail to MissionGO (see giving information below).
