About 20 Wesley Heirs came early on Monday afternoon at the Fall meeting and as planned via email correspondences, either meet at the Gator Café in Baker, FL or go together from Blue Lake after checking in. We try to get to Baker around 5:00. This is great fun and fellowship. If you have another place you wish to eat, that will be alright, too. The Gator Café does have good seafood. Register with the Maddox's, but pay Blue Lake, direct per room rate for single ($27.50)or double (13.75/person) for one night. You will be responsible for meals as none are served by Blue Lake until noon Tuesday.

Interested in leading a mission team, but don't know where to start? There will be an UMVIM (United Methodist Volunteers in Mission) team leader training on Saturday, March 15, 2014, beginning at 9:00 am and ending at 5:00 pm at Auburn UMC. Participants will receive a wealth of information on preparing an UMVIM team for service, including such topics as effective project selection, spiritual development, cultural sensitivity for teams, logistics, and finance.

Maybe you do not think you are qualified to lead a team, or have doubts about your ability to lead a team. Answering God's call to mission is not about feeling equipped or worthy; instead it is about trusting the God who called you to use you as you are. Participating in God's Mission is the call of every Christian. Your willingness to serve can and will transform your life, the lives of those who go with you, and your congregation as well. The cost is $35 which includes lunch, training manual and background check.
