Now Collecting Personal Care Items & Household Kits
Afghan Refugee Resettlement Aid
Through the Texas Annual Conference of the UMC
Thousands of refugees evacuated from Afghanistan after serving alongside American Forces are being resettled in Southeast Texas. Please help us return their acts of courage with our acts of kindness by collecting and assembling Personal Care Kits and/or Household Kits. These will be delivered to the various non-profit agencies that are overseeing this huge effort.
Faith UMC will be collecting and assembling kits and will deliver them by the end of March. Please return your items to Faith UMC
by noon Sunday, March 27th.
If you would like to help assemble kits, please come to Faith
on Monday March 28th at 10 am in the Community Room.

WATOTO MINISTRY, UGANDA
Watoto is a ministry based in Uganda that rescues orphans and places them in orphanage communities. To promote their ministry, a children's choir of Watoto travels through the U.S. each year to share their story. Each year that they are in the Houston area, Faith UMC hosts this event while providing homes for the choir while they are here.
Additionally each year, we have other mission opportunities that our children, youth, and adults participate in including UM ARMY.
