When an alien resides with you in your land, you shall not oppress the alien. The alien who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the alien as yourself; for you were aliens in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.

Small Things Support Our Various Mission Outreaches!
Dental supplies for Peru – Haley Schroeder is doing a Senior Capstone Career Project through her school, Woodstock High, based on non-profit organizations. With this project, she has to present work that replicates that of a non-profit worker.
Through this project she has decided to focus her non-profit work around a medical mission trip to Peru she will be attending this summer with Roswell United Methodist Church. With this trip, the Medical Missions team wants to collect dental supplies such as floss, small tubes of toothpaste, and tooth-brushes. In total, the team’s goal is 1200(+) of each item, and all donated supplies will be distributed to the communities in Peru in which they will be serving so they have lots of collecting to do! Their deadline for collecting will be May 15th, as they will need some time to pack and prepare the supplies for the trip. All supplies will be kept at the RUMC campus in the Dod. She will have a box sitting right inside the entrance labeled: Peru Dental Supplies.
