A Note of Gratitude from Michael Mann

Dear Chicago Northwestern District "Mission Kit" givers:

        I am writing to say a huge "thank you" to all of you who gave for the recent mission kit assembly at Annual Conference 2013. Your gifts enabled us to do far more than we could ever have imagined possible. Many of showed great generosity in your giving, and it makes a difference. You all saw the opportunity and knew of the need, and you responded.
        On that day, we received 2,906 hand towels, with about 1,000 of them coming from CNW district. All of the materials gifts received that day enabled 3,000 kits to be assembled. We assembled 1,178 on site at Annual Conference and the additional 1800 kits will be assembled throughout this summer.
Your gifts will continue to impact those who are in immediate need of relief. Whenever you hear of a hurricane or natural disaster, whether in this country or another, our relief work through UMCOR is able to be there. Your gifts will be among those that respond to the need, surrounding people with the care of Christian community.
        I pray that this gift from your congregation will continue to inspire them to be involved in God's mission in your community and throughout the world. Thank you for showing how much you care!

Michael Mann
Associate Director of Missions and Advocacy
