“Excited About First Mission Trip”

VBS Preparation

This past August, I got a phone call from my mother telling me about the opportunity I had been given by the members of my church to go on a mission trip along with my twin sister, Abbey, to El Salvador. I was so excited when I heard the news, for this would be my first mission trip – something I had longed for and prayed about for quite some time.

I thought to myself, “This is finally happening!” I was so overjoyed and ready to being planning and preparing for our week in El Salvador and ways to serve the people there. The more I thought about it, the more I realized that the mission trip opportunity really just “fell in our laps.” God ultimately provided everything for us. Having a twin sister, things can get pretty expensive sometimes. I learned soon after this phone call took place that some members of our church, the Senatobia FUMC United Methodist Women, were completely paying for our trip! How great is our God that he blesses us with exactly what we need.

Over the past few months, I have had the pleasure of meeting with and getting to know the members of our Senatobia District Mission Team.  In addition to my sister and me, there are 10 other members from our district churches.  At our meetings, we have carefully planned out each aspect of our trip, including the Vacation Bible School we are hosting for the children in Ahuachapán.  I am so excited to be a part of this, for one of my favorite types of ministry is children’s ministry.  I look forward to being a part of something so incredible for God’s kingdom.

As we are on the trip June 25-July 2, please keep this mission trip in your thoughts and prayers.  Be in prayer for the mission team, for safe travels, for the citizens of Ahuachapán, El Salvador, and for the love of Christ to be shown throughout all that we do.

We will be posting throughout the week!  Keep a check on the Senatobia District Website.


Methodist Children’s Homes of Mississippi: Help Needed




We Need You!

We are 55% to our goal of having summer activities paid for.


What does it look like to make a difference in a child’s life?


I am writing to ask you to help make a difference in the life of a child by sponsoring a wonderful summer experience. It only cost $178.57. You can make a gift of $20, $50 or the full about of $178.57 today.

This past weekend I noticed a police car on our campus. The officer informed me that he had just picked up a young girl outside our gate. The officer rolled down the back window, and I saw that it was one of our former girls sobbing uncontrollably.

She said, “Mr. Duggar my mom was threatening me and I knew I would be safe here.”

I sat there trying my hardest to console her. This young girl walked from south Jackson to our campus because you helped make the Methodist Children’s Homes her “Safe Place”.

You supported us and provided the opportunities to build the relationships and connections that truly changed her life.

Now is your chance to make these relationships and connections happen in another child’s life by funding a child’s summer experience. So – Please say yes!

Will you help support a child this summer? To fully support one child’s activities this summer it will cost $178.57.

I know you share our vision of making a difference in the lives of youth. With your help the summer program will give each child the opportunity to:

  • Learn to swim through certified swim instructors during a two-week swim class.
  • Attend a week long summer camp where they will learn the importance of a Christ-centered life. During the week they will also have the opportunity to choose between 20 outdoor activities to participate in.
  • Participate in High and Low Rope Courses that will challenge the youth physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Right now, you have the opportunity to change a life by donating to provide summer activities for one youth. Any gift you can make no matter the amount will go towards providing these summer activities.


Because of Christ,

Mike Duggar

President and CEO
