IN MINISTRY TOGETHER MAKING DISCIPLES
HUMWA Revival Met in Alexandria, MN
Put our "Faith in Action" is the theme the Hmong United Methodist Women Association for this year from May 26-29, 2017. About 200 Hmong United Methodist Women met at Lake Geneva Christian Center, Alexandria, Minnesota. They came from Charlotte, Wisconsin, Minnesota and California. The main speaker, Pastor Nruag Her, came over from Thailand. Everyone felt blessed and spiritually fed to have her come and speak to their Annual Revival. Also coming was Jou Yang, Pastor Daniel's wife who returned from Laos. Our women had learned from two people who had truly put their faith in action.

Minnesota Annual Conference Celebrates New Hmong Ministry in Northwest Minneapolis
The Minnesota Annual Conference recently celebrated an Open House to begin a new Hmong ministry in the Northwest Minneapolis area. The sanctuary of Olivet United Methodist Church in Robbinsdale, Minnesota was packed on Sunday, February 7, 2016 with friends, guests, families and members from nearby churches and Wisconsin who came to support the new ministry: Northwest Minneapolis United Methodist Ministry. Toubee Yang who had just received his local pastor license was the pastor of this new Hmong ministry. Representatives from the Minnesota Annual Conference and the National Hmong Caucus of the United Methodist Church were there to recognize and support in the opening of this new congregation.
Pastor Toubee said he had eight families coming to his church. I asked how many people all together? He said he has a record of 34 people, 16 of whom are children and youth. The Open House came just a month after they started their first Sunday on January 10, 2016. In his message for the Open House, Pastor Toubee compared his new ministry to the concept of “mustard seed” in the Bible and demonstrated it with a mango fruit and its seed. He planted the seed that one day would grow to become a tree that birds would come and take shade under it.
Olivet United Methodist Church has opened its door for Pastor Toubee and his people to start a new ministry using their facility. The Reverend Dr. Randy Taber who is the pastor graciously welcomed everyone. He has a tremendous gift that makes people truly feel belong, as we United Methodist would like to say, with “open hearts, open minds, open doors.” The church has had a history of being an inclusive church in cultural diversity. So the new Hmong ministry is an additional blessing. This new ministry will reach out to the 20,000 Hmong who live within 7 miles radius in the Northwest Minneapolis which nearly 80% Hmong who live there are unchurched. Pastor Toubee and his people are the third group of people who are using Olivet United Methodist Church. On Sunday the Olivet congregation starts their programs from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Pastor Toubee’s congregation starts from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and another group from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. A few peoples who came to the Open House said they would consider coming to be members of the new Hmong congregation. They said because the church is closer to them. More...
