Hurricane Isaac's Impact on National Mission Institutions

As hurricane Isaac sweeps through the Gulf Coast, it is important to keep our sisters and brothers in our minds, hearts and prayers. United Methodist Women executive Ebony Cody is working to be in contact with the National Mission Institutions along the Gulf Coast area. 

After reviewing this information, please take the time to visit the National Mission Institutions page and learn more about what these important centers do every day to improve the lives of women, children and youth in communities along the Gulf. This is your Mission Giving at work; your faith, hope and love in action.
