Around the world

...'Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?' And the king will answer them, 'Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.'
                                                                                                                     -Matthew 25:37-40  

Fairlington Supported Missionary: Clara Mridula Biswas, Cambodia

In 2007, Fairlington UMC entered into a covenant relationship with Clara Mridula Biswas, a missionary of the General Board of Global Ministries serving in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Clara, a native of Bangladesh, works as a community worker to improve the lives of impoverished children, many of whom are homeless and live in the street.   

As a covenant partner of Clara Biswas, Fairlington supports Clara’s work with our prayers and financial gifts. In return Clara shares highlights of her ministry in Cambodia with our congregation and visits our church when she is in the country to share her experiences first hand. Learn more about Clara and her ministry.

Read here Clara's latest message for Easter 2014, along with a drawing from one of the children.
