Annie B. Mission: Raising funds for a speech therapist at Star Mountain

Annie B Mission Team“The Annie B. Mission is all about love. We seek to follow God’s calling through service and ministry.”During Young Adult Convo 2010-2011, 50 college students of the Moravian Church had the opportunity to visit Star Mountain Rehabilitation Center in Ramallah, West Bank. They toured the facility, met the students there and spoke with Ghada and other staff. (see the accompanying stories for more on Star Mountain.)

The hearts of four participants — Ashley Green, Diana Green, Matthew Green and Elizabeth Alexander — were touched by what they had seen and heard, and they wanted to support and bring awareness to the ministry done by the center. At the same time, Steve Green, a member of New Philadelphia Moravian Church, was searching for a way to honor his wife, who passed away in September 2010. The four participants joined forces with Steve and formed “The Annie B. Mission.”

They have teamed up with Bill Ray, Moravian and photojournalist, for their current project of funding a speech therapist for Star Mountain for four years. In December, a covenant agreement was signed between the Board of World Mission and the Annie B. Mission. Donations to the Annie B. Mission can be made to the Board of World Mission, PO Box 1245, Bethlehem, PA 18016 (be sure to put “Annie B. Mission” in the check’s subject line).

Monday, November 20 — Psalm 129
Daniel 6:19–7:22; 3 John

You must neither add anything to what I command you nor take away anything from it, but keep the commandments of the Lord your God. Deuteronomy 4:2

Jesus said to them, “My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and do it.” Luke 8:21

Lord, it is so easy to interpret your holy word with our own biases and miss the point you were trying to make. Guide our hearts and minds to understand your calling for us and to act on that calling. Amen.
