Called to Build a School in Africa

July 12, 2012

How did a small urban church in Oakland's Chinatown get connected with villagers in Kumi, Uganda? And how could its congregants possibly build a school 10,000 miles away? Chinese Community United Methodist Church invites you to hear the inspiring story of faith that conquered doubt, at the United Methodist Women Mission Dinner on Saturday, July 28 at 5:30 p.m., at the church, 321 – 8th Street in Oakland.

Aeri Lee and the United Methodist Volunteers in Mission (UMVIM) team that traveled to Uganda in 2009 will take you on a journey through word and song, pictures, and drumbeats. The dinner program is part of the UMW "Urban Plunge to the Bay" UMVIM trip, and is open to all.
Cost is just $10. Make your reservations by email to
