Interactive Tour Immerses Visitors Into Daily Life in a Foreign Country
More than 700 million people in developing countries live on less than $1.90 per day, facing challenges most Americans never will. Compassion International’s The Compassion Experience is making a four-day stop in the Desoto County area September 15-18 and will bring visitors on a journey into the lives of Compassion-sponsored children. The event will be set-up in the parking lot of Hernando United Methodist Church at 1890 Mt Pleasant Rd Hernando, MS.
A self-guided tour will immerse visitors in the lives of the children. Through the use of an iPod, a headset and over 3,000 square feet of interactive space, visitors will see the children’s homes, walk through schools and markets, and hear life-changing stories of hope—all from the perspective of a child whose life began in poverty. This free event is appropriate for all ages and is an excellent opportunity for anyone who has never had the chance to travel outside the U.S. to get a small glimpse of what life can be like in developing countries.
Desoto County-area residents — all ages welcome

A few months ago we started offering a free hot drink to anyone who wanted to stop on Monday mornings on their way to work. We are expanding the time frame and the invitation to include anyone who wants to stop by. We are hoping to bring a smile and some friendly chat to the community on Monday mornings. We still will hand out a free drink to anyone who comes by without pressuring them to stay and talk, but we are opening up our community room for a longer period of time for those that want to stay whether the chatter leads us to canning tips or a to prayer and a devotional.
Coffeeville United Methodist Church will host a luncheon for women on Saturday, April 29, 11:00 – 1:00. Lunch will be followed by a time of praise and worship.

Cristen Craven Barnard of Senatobia, MS will bring a message titled “Have Faith Now” about how God makes His presence and His love real to us in every step of the process of grief. Cristen is a member of Senatobia First United Methodist Church and a former member of Lyon United Methodist Church. She serves in the Mississippi Conference of the United Methodist Church as the Senatobia District Lay Leader. She is a certified lay servant, Bible study leader, Sunday School teacher, and lay speaker. She serves on several UMC committees and is also a member of the Emmaus Community of NWMS and is part of a jail ministry team in Tate County. She and her husband Robert have 5 children and 3 grandchildren. Cristen has lived in Senatobia since 2008. She was previously from the Delta and has worked as a professional artist for 35 years.
Cristen refers to herself as a once prodigal daughter, now home. “My Lord heard my cry and lifted me up from the pit and embraced me in his love. He took this prodigal and changed my identity forever, for I am His.”
We are excited to have Cristen Craven Barnard as our guest speaker and know that she will bring encouragement with her message.
