Upcoming Mission Trip

Join us in February 2021 as we travel “virtually” to sunny Mexico and learn about UMC missionaries Nan McCurdy and Miguel Mairena and their amazing work among rural communities in southwestern Mexico. No passport needed. No shots required. No long flights or bus travel.

Our proposed Virtual mission trip would be led by a retired UMC pastor Marian Hartman in Camp Hill, PA, who has been to the Farm more than a dozen times. Resident missionaries Nan McCurdy and Miguel Mairena would host us at Give Ye Them to Eat (GYTTE), a rural mission effort of the Mexican Methodist Church.

This would be the primary effort leading up to Faith Promise Sunday. The following agenda is proposed:

  • Saturday February 6 at 4:00 PM – Orientation on Zoom led by Steve Feerrar and another team member
  • Wednesday February 10 from 10:30 AM to 1:00 PM – Visit Puebla and The Farm, by Mirian, Nan & staff
  • Saturday February 13 from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM – Complete tour of Farm and programs, Marian & Nan
    4:00 to 4:30 PM – Pick-up dinner of Mexican foods at FUMC. (Contact-less delivery to your vehicle)
    5:00 PM – Zoom dinner (at home) together for all mission trip participants
  • Sunday February 14 at 10:00 AM – Discussion and slide show about our virtual mission trip for Faith Promise Sunday
