Pastor Asks for Action on Trafficing of Women Petition
I encourage clergy to petition our Congressmen and Senators our concern for the two reporters sentenced to 12 years of hard labor. We must not lose sight they were reporting about the trafficking of women at the time of their arrest. In Asia the Korean majia is seeking to expand their influence in the sex trade. For more information, call 317-835-2757.
Birthing Kits Help Keep Moms, Babies Safe
United Methodists can assemble and send birthing kits, which provide basic, sanitary items to aid in safe and healthy deliveries, particularly in rural communities. The kits, which cost about $8 to assemble, also reduce the risk of tetanus infections. Instructions from the United Methodist Committee on Relief are available here.
