Central European Mission

This year brought a significant change in our mission outreach to Europe. Previously we supported Dr. Liz Searles who worked with youth in Romania. She resigned in January and we have switched our mission support to Burkhard Paetzold. He works out of Germany to the whole of central Europe. He has long worked with the Roma people and has now added attention to the Refugee problem. His newsletters can be found on the Presbyterian Mission Agency website.

Asian Mission

Our missionaries teach English and art in an elementary school and host neighbors in their home as a community resource. Through their interactions they reinforce Christian principles, manners, and health.
