A Fresh Wind Blowing...
By Sue Raymond
NGC UMW
President
We have just hosted a
missionary family for a
week…..but I cannot write their names or say
where they serve in any article that will be published or placed on the internet, because they serve
in an area of the world where Christian missionaries are not welcome. If you did have their names
and looked for them on the Global Ministries website, you would not find their full names nor their
pictures for security reasons. I have always said
that I would not want to be a missionary in some
of the places that I have heard about where there
are huge bugs…..but what if I were asked to go to
a place where even my presence might place me at
risk of imprisonment!
As these missionaries told their stories at dinners,
UMW meetings and worship services. I was
amazed at the ways God is using them, even
though they cannot be open about why they are in
the country where they serve. They are there ostensibly as teachers of English and vocational
training. In other places they have served they
have been the means of building relationships to
share their faith. In their current location, they
have not even been able to get permits to hold
classes because they are suspected of being Christians. But that has not stopped them from accomplishing amazing things!
The husband has been building swing sets to place outside local house churches in small villages. Even the
elementary schools in this country do not have playground equipment, so the swing sets have attracted vast
numbers of children to worship centers. We were told
that they have to force the children to go home at 10:00
at night because they love the playgrounds so much!
Who knew that a swing set could be an evangelism tool!
The wife has been helping women establish businesses
by giving them small loans, maybe only $300 to start a
business. These women can now improve the quality of
life for their families by raising ducks, starting a catfish
farm, or growing mushrooms. She is helping to empower women develop their leadership skills. She also
trains local pastors. Of the 62 local Methodist pastors in
the country, 3 of them are women….the first women
ministers of any denomination in this country! Several
of these pastors that she has trained have been imprisoned for up to three months because they will not sign a
document renouncing their faith.
What a blessing to hear of the ways that a “Fresh Wind
is Blowing” in places around the world because of the
support of United Methodist Women! If you would be
interested in hearing more about these missionaries and
where they serve, to do a presentation on their mission
outreach or in order to support their ministries, please
contact Terry Raymond, [email protected] We
cannot send information for you to publish, but we can
send you links to the websites that are secure and info
about how to support them monetarily.
Blessings -- Sue

United Methodist Women Needs You
From the Committee on Nominations (CON)
Eloise Sykes, Chair
The slate of nominees for 2016 is included in this issue of The REFLECTOR. We will vote on officers at the October
3, 2015, Annual Meeting at LaGrange First UMC.
Timothy’s mother, Eunice, known for her strong faith, which she passed on to her son and future generations, is a reminder that the work we do today affects the outcome of tomorrow. United Methodist Women is organized to live out
the PURPOSE. This means that different groups are organized differently and that they may need to change their structure from time to time to encourage ministry and mission. Flexible structures give us the freedom to organize in ways
that best fit our groups and best allow us to participate in God’s mission. (The United Methodist Women Handbook 2013
-2016 pages 18-19.
Following a discussion of the Executive Committee and the Committee on Nominations, we are this year, implementing a flexible structure to better engage in mission in the North Georgia Conference. We are not nominating a Vice
President. Instead, the President will appoint an assistant to the president for one year. The Assistant, working with the
leadership team, and a special task force, will plan and coordinate the logistics for the annual meeting and events where
there is no mission coordinator. A Spiritual Growth Coordinator has not been nominated this year. A Task Force composed of members and leaders throughout the conference will be assigned for specific events. Each Task Force will allow for the involvement of more women including young adults and youth in carrying out our PURPOSE. It will allow
for persons to serve for a shorter period of time and will result in the need to attend fewer meetings.
Thanks to all who have allowed their name to be included on the slate of nominees. We give thanks to God for each of
you. CON is building a Data Bank for potential leaders. If you have a talent, let us know about it. If you would like to
recommend someone for leadership, please do so to any member of the committee and look for us at a table near registration at each event. Look for us also to attend your district events. We want to meet potential leaders. There is A
Fresh Wind Blowing.

Pray
Dear God,
We thank you for life here on earth and
in your eternal kingdom. As we dwell
on earth we search.
Help us to live our lives constantly
searching for your will, for your work
and for your ways.
Lord help us to recognize that You are
always searching for us—that around
every corner and through every path.
You are always with us.
Guide our search toward your glory so
that we may make disciples in Jesus’s
name. for the transformation of the
world.
Lord we ask that you fill our hearts
with passion for your glory and our
minds with your wisdom so that we
may be the results of your love for the
world!
For we know that all who search, will
find, and for all who knock, the door
will be opened.
Open our hearts to your love and open
our minds to your glory so that we may
be living sacrifices for the world.
In Your precious and holy name we
pray,
Amen!

A Fresh Wind Blowing” through the Limitless Task Force
The Limitless Task Force is a group of teens and
young women (ages 13 – 40+) who made a commitment to discover what God has called them to do as
they work in fruitful partnership with the seasoned
women in the North Georgia Conference “as such a
time as this.” Esther 4:
We have witnessed God working through these young
women in programs and events within the last year..
Limitless was actively involved in the Spiritual / Social Experience at Rock Eagle on May 1st & 2nd. They
led us in activities to get acquainted, introduced the
speaker, Rev. Tonya Lawrence and assisted with the
communion service. As part of our planning session
from the retreat, the conference will partner with Limitless to invite teens and young women to a brunch to
share our plans and get them involved in their districts.
My heart was strangely warmed to see them participate in the Mission u Event at Fayetteville First UMC
on July 17th & 18th by reading overviews of the mission studies, assisting in the youth class, selling new
Limitless T-shirts and volunteering to share with
churches in the conference.
Let’s encourage all the teens and young women to get
involved and share their gifts with you by letting the
fresh wind blow through your meetings, programs,
events, hands on mission work and etc.
Congratulations to our Limitless group for exciting
things happening in their lives:
Ariel preparing for her first year at Reinhardt College
Nikki was married on July 18th
Lauren getting married in the fall
Kasey having a baby
Deborah finished her first year in college.
Danielle and Naomi starting back to school and involvement in other activities
Jillian and Isabelle involving their families in retreats

study and Program Book are designed to enhance our
biblical study and spiritual lives as we grow in Christ.
I normally write articles that reflect insight into an
epiphany or experienced I felt led to share. This article is somewhat different in that it will refer you to the
two books mentioned above. If you read these, you

What can I say? I was touched by being a facilitator
and I hope you attended Mission u and looking at what
God through Jesus and the Holy Spirit will help you
see what He has in store for you.
This is my last year as Mission Coordinator for Spiritual Growth and I hope you continue to grow in the
Lord and utilize the resources and attend the Spiritual/
Social Events. The workshop on Prayer opened my
eyes to communicating with God while being outside
in nature. The Prayer Walk as we read scriptures

each individual personally. My, my, my-- God

open up yourself to the Holy Spirit and all He has for

around you.
This was my first year as an adult study leader for
Mission u and I gained insight into the United MethShalom

Cards, Cards, and more Cards
Increase mission giving
North Georgia United Methodist Women is all
about Missions and the many, many ways to give to
Missions. United Methodist Women is the most dedicated and consistent mission giving group and I am
honored to be a member. I have been blessed to be a
member of this group of wonderful women since I was
17 years old. I am also blessed to serve as the Treasurer
of the Atlanta Marietta District. When I accepted the
position of treasurer of this hardworking district, I was
amazed at all the channels of giving we have available.
One of the areas was our gift to missions through the
giving of beautiful cards which are offered for so many
occasions. These cards are available to our district
treasurers simply for the cost of postage which is very
minimal, therefore, leaving the entire amount of the
$5.00 donation going straight to missions. How much
money do you, as an individual, spend on cards in a
year’s time? My guess would be A LOT when you consider the price of a card these days is anywhere from $3
-$6 each. The card companies love this and appreciate
your business but what if you had these beautiful mission cards available to you each and every time you
need a card and did not even have to go out to the store
to buy them. Every time you send a card, you can feel
good in knowing that you gave a donation to missions
to help the women and children who are in need instead of helping to increase profits in the card industry.
Local UMW Units can purchase these cards, and do,
but sometimes they are simply used for Unit needs
whereas I feel they should be available on an honor
system so that each time a Unit or Circle meets, these
cards are available for the members to purchase one
card at a time. This way, they are available when the
need for a card arises. Encourage your local treasurer
to reach out to your district treasurer for a supply of
cards and watch your Units gift to missions increase. I
think you will be pleasantly surprised as I have been
in our district.
Local Unit Treasurers, call your district treasurer today to see how this will work for your Unit.

UMW group works at Sager-Brown Depot
By Sandra Clarke
Once a year Barbara Rankin of Hanleiter UMC in Griffin leads a small group of United Methodist Women to work for a
week at the Sager-Brown Depot operated by the United Methodist Committee on Relief in Baldwin, La. This year Barbara and Martha Huckaby could not go because of a death in Barbara's family and Martha stayed home to comfort and
console her. We missed these sweet ladies so much but four made the trip: Alice Smith, Pat Flynt, Sara Worden and
Sandra Clarke.
When we arrived at the depot, we were joined by Pat's brother, the Rev. Jack McCollough, retired UM minister from
Woodbine, Ga., and his niece, Denise Smith, from Florida. We met United Methodists from Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and South Carolina for a great week of fellowship and work. Some of our group worked in the depot assembling
health kits and school kits, and Sandra helped sew school bags in the sewing room. Jack used his talents to help repair a
home for a local family.
One day we all joined together to load and bless a container of health kits that was going to the Ukraine. That was a
touching moment and one we will long remember. Our group enjoyed an afternoon touring the Tabasco plant at Avery
Island and an old Rice Mill and taking a swamp ride with a real Cajun. The food, fellowship and lodging make the week
extra special.
On Friday as we began our return trip, we made a planned stop in Houma, La. at the MacDonnell Children's Center.
This home is a Mission Institution of United Methodist Women The director gave us a great tour of the campus. They
house at present 12 boys and soon will welcome 12 girls. The community stepped up to help them decorate the girls'
dorm and it is quite beautiful! United Methodist Women is constantly working to minister to children and youth at risk.
This detour allowed us to see our money at work and helped us endure the long road home.

Hello Ladies,
Greetings Sisters,
I hope you had a great summer but still had time for
mission work.
I have been busy. I was registrar for the UMW Annual Conference breakfast in Athens, GA,
attended the 2015 Youth Conference in Orlando,
FL with over 5,000 youth and young adults.
My granddaughter, Ariel Murphy, had the honor to
speak on behalf of the Limitless team.
Let me know if you have started a Limitless group
in your church or district.
I also attended the Mission u event at Fayetteville
First UMC in Fayetteville, GA with mission studies
that blessed so many women, children and youth.
We had a wonderful time at the Spiritual / Social Experience on May 1st & 2nd at Rock Eagle.
It was great fellowship and excellent workshops that
blessed all who attended.
I need District Membership Nurture and Outreach
reports with the total number of members in your
district as of June 30, 2015.
This form was mailed to the District Presidents and
should be e-mailed back to me
([email protected]).
Have you heard .... a "Fresh Wind is Blowing?" That
wind blew through Fayetteville First UMC on July
17th & 18th at Mission u . Instructors made the Latin
America studies fun for the children and youth. The
three adult studies were " Created for Happiness, Latin
America and Church with Disabilities." The adult studies were taught in English, Korean and Spanish.
Thank God for sending a fresh wind through the Study
Leaders. Please invite them to do a mission study in
your church and plan to attend next year in July.
We need your help to do hands on mission work for
UMCOR such as school bags, birthing kits, Christmas
shoe boxes and etc.
Please contact your District Presidents if you have any
questions.
Please let me know if you have any questions.

Membership, Nurture and Outreach Coordinator
We are a community of women who are inheritors of

Mission u Draws Increased Attendance
A greatly-increased number of participants worshiped,
learned and fellowshipped at the North Georgia Conference Mission u July 17-18 at Fayetteville First
UMC in the LaGrange District. The overall attendance this year was 242 compared to 185 last year.
Fayetteville First was exceedingly generous in their
hospitality, led by Linda Ladd, who served as the
"liaison" between the church and the Mission u planning committee; Lauren Davis, president of United
Methodist Women; and all of the church staff. Everyone pitched in to cheerfully assist in getting rooms rearranged to accommodate our classes while UMW
members provided ample refreshments and posted
themselves at strategic locations to give directions as
we learned to navigate the building.
The church's new senior pastor of about four weeks,
the Rev. David Campell, delivered a rousing missionoriented sermon at our opening worship. Church hostess Jane Davis oversaw the preparation of three
scrumptious meals, and the music of church musicians
Nancy Lindsey and Sonia Squires greatly enhanced
our opening worship. We sang in three languages -Korean, Spanish and English!
One of the many highlights of the opening worship
service was a dance troupe from the Iglesia Latino
Americano de Snellville. The offering, which totaled
over $1250, was split between four Latin American
local and international ministries.
on "The Church and People with Disabilities," and the
spiritual growth study, "Created for Happiness: Understanding Your Life in God," was led by Pat Bell,
Mary Anne Brannon and the Rev. Eric Powell.
Once again Sue and Terry Raymond taught the children's class -- which numbered 19 -- and the Rev.
Tonya Lawrence and the Rev. Allyson Lawrence
teamed to teach the youth class. Both the children's
and youth classes were on Latin America.
On the day before Mission u began, about 40 gathered
to work in various mission projects. Some addressed
cards to the church's homebound members; others assembled health kits, school kits and layette kits; and
another group also traveled to Fayette Samaritans to
assist with chores there. Fayette Samaritans is an ecumenical Christian ministry serving those in need in
Fayette County.
Mission u is jointly sponsored by the Conference
United Methodist Women and the Conference Missions/Global Ministries team. Each group provides
equal leadership and financial support.
Members of the Mission u planning team included Alice Smith, dean, Deloris Carhee, Tryphenia Speed,
Robert and Glenda Creasy, Sue and Terry Raymond,
Cathy White, Mattie Strozier, Teresa Wynn, Idelia
Ulmer, Grace Pyen, Juan Quintanilla and Linda Ladd.
Leading Mission u in 2016 will be Deloris Carhee,
dean, and Judie Wendt, assistant dean.
The study leaders were truly a reflection of our diversity in United Methodism in the North Georgia Con- Alice Smith,
ference. We offered a Korean-language class led by
Mission u Dean
Marian Kim, a native of Korea, and a Spanishlanguage class led by the Rev. Lucy Morales, a native
of Venezuela.
Teaching the geographic study on "Latin America:
People and Faith" were the Rev. Juan Quintanilla, a
native of Mexico, and Dr. Judith Pierre-Okerson, a
United Methodist Women's director from Florida and
a native of Haiti.
