    As reports of the 2014 Ebola epidemic in West Africa spread, the Rev. Frederick Yebuah, who is a native of Ghana in West Africa, decided to compose a litany for those impacted by the disease. Yebuah, who is a clergy member in the South Carolina Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church, shared the litany on the website of the United Methodist Board of Discipleship. Producers at United Methodist Communications excerpted a portion of the prayer and matched it with music and images from West Africa to create a powerful meditation for use by individuals or in group settings. It offers a way for people of faith to show their support of those who are suffering and to reflect on challenges in their own lives.

    It cleanses, nourishes, redeems, and heals. It is symbolic and significant in our lives and in our faith. The blessing of water is God’s gift to us, and its abundant presence in our world is a constant reminder of our baptism, of the eternal life we are granted through Christ. Photographs by United Methodists from various conferences accompany Sophia Agtarap as she reflects on how water connects us with our brothers and sisters around the world.

The church sewing club also makes adaptive clothing for war amputees. It is an example of a church identifying the specific needs of men and women in uniform and mobilizing the help of a whole community to respond. Sgt. Brian Schulze has received care packages from the church over the years, “With how long we’ve been in this conflict, you kinda wonder if people are still paying attention. Americans over there are still sacrificing themselves. It means a lot that people still recognize that,” says Schulze.

    On November 8, 2013, Typhoon Haiyan, possibly the strongest storm to ever reach land, devastated parts of the Philippines. Three Filipino bishops were far from home, attending a gathering of United Methodist bishops in the U.S., when the world learned of the terrible destruction from the storm. Bishops Pedro M Torio, Ciriaco Francisco, and Rudy Juan spoke with United Methodist Communications a few days after the storm and shared their appreciation for the prayers and support church members offered. Bishop Juan said, "I believe that with help from The United Methodist Church worldwide, from countries that support the Philippines, we'll rise above this and we'll be able to move on. Because we are a global church, when one part of the world suffers, the other members of the connection will help. Because of our connection, there's so much help. And thank you so much."
