A year ago, a group from PVUMC welcomed the Radwan family to America. Today, this Syrian refugee family, who spent 5 years in a camp in Jordan, are still struggling to make ends meet on one paycheck for a family of 6, but they have access to health care, the children are happy and enrolled in school, they are proficient in English, and they are safe. Thank you to those who've chosen to welcome the stranger and love your neighbors as yourself. You are God's love in action. ❤ #Godsloveinaction #RAFT #refugees #syrianrefugees ... See MoreSee Less

Seniors who are experiencing homelessness and are served by Justa Center decided they wanted to help the homeless youth and young adults served by one n ten, after that organization lost its home to a fire earlier this month. They provided sack lunches and a thoughtful note. Thank you for being God's love in action! #Godsloveinaction #justacenter #homeless #seniors #youngadults #youth #onenten #LGBTQ ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you to our friends at the Justa Center for dropping off pre-made lunch packages for us today! Many of our youth are experiencing homelessness and a nice hearty meal is essential to meeting their basic needs. We appreciate this generous gift so very much!

What an awesome group! Thanks for all the photos and updates from the mission field, PVUMC Youth Group. You are God's love in action! #seniorhighmissiontrip #oakland Praying Pelican Missions - San Francisco ... See MoreSee Less

This picture was taken at 2:30pm this afternoon. We were just finishing up handing out meals and prayers at the second site. We were scheduled to go to a third site, but when we looked at the number of meals we had left, we realized we didn't have enough to feed our group and take care of the third site. So we asked the entire group what they wanted to do: go back to our host site and eat, or go on to the final site to hand out the remaining meals we had (even though that'd mean that most of us wouldn't have eaten for nearly eight hours). Unanimously, the group chose to go on and hand out our food. An incredible day. Pray for: the entire group, that we might get good rest tonight. The people we met today, that they might find the help they need. And finally, prayers for the people we will meet tomorrow.
