International Missions is focused on “Reaching” and “Loving” others in their environment. Our goal is to be in service to others realizing that answering the question of who is our neighbor, means not only those in our community, but even those outside our country. Northern Hills is engaged in the world in several places. We continue to cultivate our relationship with a Methodist Mission Station in Liberia. This has included our Youth Mission Trip this past summer. In addition, our financial support has purchased sewing machines and carpentry tools for vocational programs, as well as school text books. The most meaningful part of this relationships developed between our youth and adults, and our brothers and sisters in Liberia.
After initial exchange visits this past year, we are in the process of developing a partnership with a strong church in Ciudad Acuna with a goal of sharing in joint mission projects to foster Christian relationships. We also have members participating in International Deaf Ministry providing signing training with international Christian missions.
Clean water is one of the real issues in underdeveloped countries and it is one of the most important focus areas of international missions. Team World Vision implements clean water projects. Northern Hills participates through marathons and runs as described below.
