    A UMVIM team will visit Zimbabwe in July of 2017 and interested individuals are invited to learn more. The team will be visiting Africa University as well as spending time at Mutambara Methodist Mission. They will be doing light construction projects, participating in activities in the preschool and primary school, and working on sewing and cooking projects with the pregnant women who stay at Mutambara Methodist Mission for a month awaiting delivery of their babies. Lower age limit is 16 unless accompanied by a parent or grandparent; there is no upper age limit, but members do need to be in good health and need to be mobile. Estimated cost is $3,500, all inclusive.

    The initial team introductory meeting will be at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 27, at the Port Byron UMC. Attendance does not commit you, but allows you to explore this opportunity to be in mission. If you have questions, feel free to contact Sylvia Reimer at or 315-778-5074.

    With more than 144,000 members, the Upper New York Annual (Regional) Conference of The United Methodist Church comprises 865 local churches and 91 new faith communities in 12 districts, covering 48,000 square miles in 49 of the 62 counties in New York state. Our mission is to “live the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to be God’s love with our neighbors in all places."
