Camphor Mission Station Camphor, Liberia, West Africa September 14th to 30th, 2013

The Mid-Ohio District will be sending a team of mission workers to Camphor Mission Station in Liberia, West Africa from September 14th to 30th, 2013.  The team will be staying and working at the Camphor Mission Station, which is home to the Garfield U.M.C., a medical clinic and a school.

Camphor Mission is in partnership with the East Ohio Conference U.M.C. 3C’s Mission Project: Churches, Clinics and Classrooms.

Camphor Mission is addressing the needs in rural Liberia for Christian spirituality, education, health, clean water, and agriculture. We can all be in partnership with other United Methodist Churches around the world.  The work to be done at Camphor Mission will include many areas of skills and interest and may be based upon weather conditions at the mission.

Psalm 82:3-4 states: “Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless; maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed. Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”  

Will you consider being a part of the next team of servants ministering in God's Kingdom in Liberia, West Africa?

Estimated cost per person would be approximately $3000 per person for the travel, meals, and transportation. 

The Mid-Ohio District U.M.C. Office will provide a $300 assistance grant for up to four members or individuals of the M-O District.  

Please check with your own church, district, and conference office, along with local community organizations for assistance and sponsorship to defray the costs of the mission trip.  

The September Camphor Mission team will attempt to work together on at least one fund-raiser to help make the overall cost within reason for all individuals.

Contact Stanley Wertz about joining the team at or by phone (419) 892-3539. 

Group size is limited, so please make contact as group orientation and training will begin soon.
