mission trips

FUMCOR has sent 76 Humanitarian Mission Teams into the world.  They have served in five countries (Nicaragua, Honduras, Haiti, Panama & the United States).  Teams have performed Construction, Bible School, taught Sewing, held Medical, Health & Vision Clinics, performed and taught Children's Oral Health, taught Community Gardening, built Stoves, performed Pastoral Training, performed many aspects of Disaster Recovery including reconstruction and verifying and assembling various Disaster Relief Kits.  They have also performed facility and grounds maintenance at UMCOR facilities and most importantly developed strong relationships while performing as Gods hands & feet on earth.
