Jesus said, "You will know them by their fruits" (Matthew 7:16 rsv); and the more than 900 United Methodist-supported missionaries are certainly recognizable for their fruits as they offer their gifts of health care, teaching, evangelism, refugee assistance, and congregational development in more than 70 countries around the world. By sharing the good news of Jesus Christ through their varied fruits of ministry, these missionaries help others to realize and develop their own gifts for self-reliance and service to others. Please choose a missionary from the list below. Click on their name to learn more about them.
