United Methodist Women Announces Ubuntu Journeys for 2013

Plan now to join one of our exciting Ubuntu Journeys!

Ubuntu Journey to Chile

Dates: April 17-27, 2013
We’ll join with women from the Methodist Women’s Federation in Coronel and Lota, located in the eighth region of Chile, south of Santiago along the coast where Concepcion is the regional capital. Methodist women engaged in community work are excited to share their program with us.

Ubuntu Journey to South Korea

Dates: September 2-13, 2013
We’ll be hosted by the women of Scranton Women’s Leadership Center where the belief is: “To educate a woman is to educate her family, her society and her country.” We will learn about the leadership center, visit Ewha Woman’s University and join with the women of the Korean Methodist Church as we experience love and fellowship together.

Ubuntu Journey to Zimbabwe

Dates: October 3-13, 2013
This is a return visit for Ubuntu Journeys as the United Methodist Women of Zimbabwe hosted our pilot Ubuntu Journey in 2006. We will be welcomed with open arms and joyful song in Harare, visit Africa University, Old Mutare Mission and share in discussions various issues impacting women, children and youth.
