Marianna/Panama City District United Methodist Women
at AWF UMW Annual Meeting 2017
To all our dear Marianna-Panama City United Methodist Women members,
You are in our Prayers. You know us, we can't all physically come and help you move a piece of destroyed furniture to the curb. We can't know any emotion you're feeling at the loss of "everything" of memory or years of living in this one place.
Your suffering and loss are in our Prayers. We have been asking everyone we know "do you know her conditions?" "do you know about this street?" We do know of the many churches damage as they update the church conference news daily. We know many church buildings in the area are damaged, but not the Spirit of the church. That's hopeful news for us.
I will place this reminder about our 2018 theme of Hope before you "We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure." We continue our Prayers for each day to bring you renewed strength and health as you are cared for by the One who knows just what you need.
Because we all know and realize the extreme pressures each of you may be having just living day to day, please do not worry about any end of the year UMW reports. We will regroup next year at the local unit and district level. If you do have money or reports already ready to send, please send them to the conference and we will take care of them in an attempt to take off any undue pressure from your district leaders who are also experiencing hardships. You may email the conference for directions and questions at contact@awf-UMW.org.
