I velcroed my cape, hopped in the van, and took off towards a super summer...
This was my 10th summer working with Mobile United Methodist Missionaries. Devoted to making disciples in mostly rural southern Iowa, this organization spends summers working alongside church volunteers in vacation Bible school ministry. This year, we used Cokesbury’s Hero Central curriculum to show kids (and grown-ups!) that when they live with God, they are superheroes. Places I traveled this summer included Randolph, Van Wert, Osceola, Farmington, Orient, Hebron, New Virginia, Council Bluffs, and a park in Oskaloosa. The other two MUMM travelers, Cherie Miner and Paige Jensen, have similar lists.
Highlights from this summer:

Or, donate supplies. With three of us on the road this summer, we’ve depleted our stock of construction paper, glue sticks, washable and permanent markers. We could also use more kids’ scissors. Just let Cherie know you have supplies, and she’ll arrange to pick them up. It will give us a chance to share about our work and say “thank you”—because your apportionments, district askings and generous donations make it possible for us to do this work.
If you’re interested in hosting a VBS, after-school or other youth program in your community, but need help getting started, contact Cherie at email@example.com or Allison at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additionally, contact Cherie if you’d like support for after-school and Sunday school programs, including for ideas and materials to help with the Conference’s Change a Child’s Story initiative. She’s also happy to share stories about MUMM’s work.
