 2012 Easter Offering For Missions – Mexico

Through the support of Evangelical Friends Mission we empower the people who have been called by God to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ around the globe. This year the annual Easter offering for missions features Mexico. Our missionaries in Aguascalientes and Siete Ejidos assist local believers in addressing the spiritual and physical needs in their communities. You can play a part in going out to preach everywhere through your gift to the 2012 Easter offering, which will be taken on Easter Sunday. Please designate your gift “Easter Offering.”
