Mark your calendar and spread the word! Each day, Oct. 10-19, 10-Fold will feature a different United Methodist ministry supported by the General Board of Global Ministries and United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR). Through live webcasts, streaming video, online chats, and other media, you'll be able to learn about these amazing ministries that are changing people's lives.
And on Tuesday, Oct. 18, the amazing ministry of the day is The United Methodist Church's work in the Philippines – sponsored by this Conference.
