Become a Partner in Mission
The Apostle Paul called the coming of Jesus Christ as “in the fullness of time” in order to redeem us and make us children of God (Gal. 4:4-5). There is no better time than now to transform the Hmong community for Jesus Christ. As the Hmong elders and leaders are passing, the dawn of a new era has come. Let’s make the most of opportunities (Gal. 6:9-10). Who will reach out to them? Who will answer the call? Who will be a partner in mission?
Twelve people answered Jesus’ call and the world has never become the same again. There were one hundred twenty people on the Day of Pentecost who prayed and the church was born. There were Twelve Tribes of Israel who became a nation of God holy people. Together these peoples transformed the world. NHC calls for all our Hmong United Methodists and others for your partnership to help transform the Hmong community for Jesus Christ. Below are ways you can help to make it happens:
