Mental health is a familiar term to us all now, being particularly spoken about during this pandemic. We can see evidence of emotional distress around us in the community and our church family is not immune to these pressures. Mary Hodson suggests some ways to care for your mission workers.
In Luke 7 we read of a Roman centurion in Capernaum whom the Jewish elders warmly commended to Jesus. They told him, “He loves our nation and has built our Synagogue.” Jesus commended the man’s faith and healed his servant. This incident provides the inspiration for UFM’s Operation Centurion ministry.
UFM in the USA (UFM Worldwide (USA)) was first established in August 2013 with an office in Birmingham, Alabama. The OneHundredFold team had become part of UFM in 2012, and we needed to provide the services our mission workers who are American citizens required.
