1 Kings 17:8-16
1 Corinthians 2:6-16
There are many ways to support the work of Global Ministries’ missionaries. Prayer is one way. Volunteering for a mission trip is another. Still others donate funds – some through One Great Hour of Sharing or through their congregation to a specific country or project. Friedens UCC in Indianapolis decided to lend support to a specific missionary – Elena Huegel who serves the Pentecostal Church of Chile. The congregation allocated $5,000 per year in their 2012 through 2014 budgets to support Elena’s presence in Chile. This $15,000 commitment is part of the church’s Faith Forward campaign, which has as one of its goals to, “provide funding for investment with a global mission partner that will provide us a direct link to the front line of the mission fields”. Elena is certainly on the front lines of mission as a third generation missionary, having spent 15 years in Chile providing critical presence in critical times.
