September 2012. Pastor Tom Tran takes a 2-week "vacation" for a mission trip, training United Methodist local pastors, and visiting new UM congregations and orphanages in Vietnam. We pray for Pastor Tran's safety and for the growth of the UM Church in Vietnam under Communist rule.
Donations to support the orphanages which Tom will visit, and United Methodist work in Vietnam are always welcome. Please make your checks payable to OUMC, mark them "Vietnam project", and place in our offering, or bring to the church office.
These are photos Tom sent us from his "Preaching for Life Change" class in Saigon (now known as Ho Chi Minh City). We hope he'll send us more!
