Missions 2017 – Calcutta Mercy Ministries

Calcutta Mercy Ministries – Calcutta India
This morning I will share all about my missions trip to Calcutta India. Imagine struggling to simply exist. You struggle to fill your stomach, struggle to clothe your family, and struggle to afford even a shack of a house. When you are sick, you do not have medicine. When you have children, they cannot go to school. And when you need money, you cannot find work. This is real life for the poor of Calcutta, India. They have no bank accounts. They have no insurance policies. The only tenuous security they have is rooted in the number of able hands in the family; hands that often belong to children. Children forgo school to labor in fields, scrounge for food, or beg, bringing in very meager earnings just to keep the family alive for one more day. Calcutta is home to 14 million people yet it is located in a space no bigger than Sacramento. Today I will share and see what our part will be in God’s plan for Calcutta India
Blessings, Pastor Erik

Ken and Jane Bosworth – “The Importance of Missions”

We are so blessed to have so many wonderful and gifted people here, at Mt. Zion Church! This week we have Ken and Jane Bosworth sharing their heart and experiences with world missions. With the help of Ken, Jane and others, we look forward to what God has planned for us and what is our part in world missions. Ken and Jane will begin to give us and overview of what “Missions” should look like and how it should operate here at Mt. Zion Church. I am very proud to do ministry with such great and knowledgeable people! This Sunday should open all our eyes to just what God wants to do in and though all of us and Mt. Zion Church! This morning it is my honor to give the pulpit to Mt. Zion’s own: Ken and Jane Bosworth!
