The California-Nevada Annual Conference UMVIM (United Methodist Volunteers in Mission) Office is maintaining a list of persons interested in volunteering to work in Haiti or in local support projects in the near future. Tom Hazelwood of UMCOR reports, "UMCOR will be sending a team to Haiti just as quickly as we can get confirmation from the Methodist Church of Haiti that it is safe and the Government will allow us in."
Phil Bandy, Cal-Nevada's UMVIM coordinator, says, "We will contact everyone on the list with more information as it becomes available, and once teams can enter we can start scheduling."
Online registration will be available soon. In the meantime, please send the following information to the CA-NV UMVIM Office and you will be contacted with any updated information that becomes available:
· Want to work in Haiti?
· Prefer to provide local support?
The registration is open to all people within the Western Jurisdiction.
