World Missions is an important part of the ministry of Friendswood Friends Church. Through our denominational mission organization, Evangelical Friends Mission, we help to support mission work all over the world – in places like Nepal, Mexico, Rwanda, Ireland, Hungary, India, and the Philippines.
In addition to our support of EFM, we have chosen to have a special relationship with several missionary families who have close ties to Friendswood Friends. Each year we raise thousands of dollars beyond our regular budget in order to participate significantly in the financial support of these families. But our support goes beyond just writing a check. We believe that our prayers are an important part of our partnership with our missionaries.
We also look for “hands-on” ways to be involved in our mission fields, like sending short-term mission teams, or taking on special projects like the shipping container full of computers and science equipment that we recently sent to Rwanda.
