  • National Ministry Supported by St. John's UMC


    This mission is supported by St. John's UMC monetarily through donations and offerings to the Central Texas Conference.

    This mission project serves those in need of medical transportation or medicine delivery in the rural areas of the Congo. This project started back in 1960 when there were no new roads to facilitate transportation. It is still the 911 emergency contact for the rural areas. The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) often calls and asks us to distribute medicine and transport medical workers along the river to help victims. If you are interested in this mission work, contact the church office at (512) 863-5886.
