Our preschool Sunday School class has been in mission with preschool children in South Africa since 1999. We support the Phakamisa Educare and Granny Projects. Phakamisa educates and cares for young children in the poorest townships and squatters camps in and around Pinetown South Africa through their "Wandering Teacher" program. The Granny project supports women who take in and care for AIDS orphans. Our annual candle sale during Advent, which has become a tradition here at the MUMC, provides desperately needed financial support.
