These will be meetings for anyone interested in traveling to any of the 3Cs locations sometime in 2013-2014. We will be working in clinics, classrooms, and churches!  There will be people on hand with answers to most of your questions about all of the ministry areas.  The focus of the meetings will be how to raise funds and prayer support, team meeting expectations, and living conditions in the ministry locations.  Other details will be discussed later in the year at team meetings.   These are the dates for future trips.

3 Cs   
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 with tentative dates being September 14th to 30th, 2013. 

The team will be staying and working at the Camphor Mission Station. Bishop 
Hopkins has said about Camphor, "The mission cares for the whole person - body, mind and spirit - with a church, a medical clinic and a school. Thus, the 3Cs mission project includes Churches, Clinics and Classrooms." The Lead Missionary of the station is Kathy Dickriede of Mentor UMC. 

Due to September being the rainy portion of the year, we will be asked to focus on working within the clinic and classrooms at Camphor Mission.  Camphor Mission is addressing the needs in rural Liberia for Christian spirituality, education, health, clean water, and agriculture. We can be in partnership with other United Methodist Churches 
around the world. 

Estimated cost per person would be approximately $3000 per person for the 
travel, meals, and transportation. Contact Stanley Wertz about joining the team at cwertz1@neo.rr.com or by phone (419) 892-3539.
Group orientation and training are in process so be in contact ASAP!
