Bosnia Mission 2017, June 29 – July 12
2017 will mark FUMC’s twenty-first year of ministry in Bosnia. We were the first church to send a relief team to that war torn country and one of the few congregations remaining in partnership with the people there. We are blessed to have a special relationship with the children, youth, and families in Gornji Vakuf. Your generosity over the years has made it possible for volunteers to provide a summer camp each year for the children in this small rural community. Few recreational opportunities are available in this community where unemployment is near 50% and the majority of citizens live in poverty. The following list of general supplies is very helpful for this summer program. Donated supplies can be left in the Trinity Sunday School Room.
