The majority of people live their lives knowing that people less fortunate cannot obtain
the everyday objects that they are graced with. While people are certain of this fact they do not
truly understand the concept until they have seen it for themselves. Many people get this
experience just by talking to the less fortunate or volunteering at a soup kitchen, but my awaking
was this past July when I went down to West Virginia to rebuild homes for those that could not
afford the repairs on their own.

On of my favorite positions that I hold is serving as the conference Youth representative on the Mission central board of managers. Mission Central is an organization that was started back in 2002 that exists in partnership with many Northeast conferences and mission organizations such as UMCOR. It also aids in relief actions when help is needed by making and sending out things like health kits, school kits, flood buckets and more.

Mission Central also participates in other ongoing ministries such as Computer ministries, a ministry that collects donated computers and refurbishes/recycles them for other ministries that may be in need of them, and New Digs, a program that provides needy families with gently used furniture and other household goods. In addition, Mission Central does quite a bit for mission education.
