Afghan Resettlement Project
This year the Kenmore UMC Mission Team has chosen to support our Afghan Resettlement Project. One young couple, Omid, Spozhmay and their infant Asra are living in one of our apartments. They have family who just moved to an apartment in Buffalo. . These two families represent only a small percentage of the 450 or more Afghan's being resettled in the Buffalo area. They will require housing, transportation, food, clothing, medical care and more. Most of these re-settlers left their homeland with only the clothes on their backs, in fear of their lives. They love to tell of their homeland but made the heart-breaking decision to leave for the safety of their children and themselves. The funds from the Easter Alternative will help us support these families and others as they acclimate themselves to the Buffalo area, get jobs, and become part of the fabric that  is Western New York.

From the Northeast Jurisdiction of Bishops of the UMC
Bishop Mark J. Webb and the rest of the Northeastern Jurisdiction College of Bishops has issued a ten-minute video sharing their vision of recommitment and hope even in these times of fear, illness, division, grief, greed, and unbridled abuses of power.

From The Desk of Bishop Mark Webb

"In Light of the tragic events in Ukraine"
As the world watches the Russian military aggression and invasion within Ukraine, we as United Methodist followers of Christ reaffirm the truth that “we deplore war and urge the peaceful settlement of all disputes among nations." 
I invite you to join with me in offering prayers of protection, peace, and resolution. Please pray for all individuals in this region of the world being impacted by these events, including our United Methodist brothers and sisters in Ukraine. With a united heart and spirit, I share with you this letter from my colleague and friend, Bishop Christian Alsted.
