Partnering with Arizona Justice for our Neighbors (AZJFON), join the Susquehanna Conference VIM team for an Immigration Immersion Journey. We will hear from Arizona Justice for our Neighbors (JFON grew out of the United Methodist Committee on Relief’s commitment to refugees and immigrants), Pima County Medical Examiner, and The Inn of Southern Arizona (United Methodist run program for asylum seekers). We will tour Nogales, Sonora, Mexico led by Border Community Alliance and take a trip into the desert with Humane Borders or the Tucson Samaritans. We will learn about the immigration crisis with the intention of conveying that knowledge to our churches, ministries, and circles so as to support the relief efforts.

We will spend our time at Wesley Forest Camp (hiking, boating, swimming, and conquering the challenge course), building community, and working on mission projects! We will be learning what it means to be in mission and how God calls us to it. A collaboration of Camp & Retreat Ministry, Volunteers in Mission and Mission u, our theme is “Seek and You Shall Find: Living in the Kin-dom”.
This will teach us to find the kin-dom within the world around us, how to live what we have learned and how to tell others about the kin-dom. If you are looking for an opportunity to live out your faith, learn more about mission theology, all while spending time in nature, this event is for you.
Youth, you don’t need to bring an adult with you, but you can. We will have counselors to supervise youth. Adults, this camp is for you too! You will not be a supervisor of youth campers, but we will work together as a team. Youth and adults are also encouraged to come experience camp together.

Phone volunteers are the first line of responders who lend an ear and record their needs. This vital work helps organize information that is provided to relief organizations and disaster teams, allowing them to reach the survivors and meet their needs much quicker.
Phone volunteering is a great COVID-safe way to do meaningful service and training will be provided. If you have a phone and a computer with internet access, you can participate in the important mission opportunity from the comfort of your home.
