MISSION CAPSULE: In November 2021, the United Mission to Nepal (UMN) will welcome Dhana Lama as its first ever Nepali Executive Director. In addition to being UMN’s first Nepali Executive Director, Dhana will be the 13th Executive Director since its founding in 1954 and the third woman to lead UMN. Outgoing Executive Director, Joel Hafvenstein said, “Dhana is a strong and forthright leader who is also a listener, with the humility not to fear change or the acknowledgement of mistakes. Her passion for service to Nepal’s poorest people is unquestionable.” As an international, interdenominational Christian mission, UMN received funding from partners designated for specific projects, which doesn’t leave much for staff salaries. Through Presbyterians Sharing ...the PCC will join the Church of Scotland, the Presbyterian Church in Ireland and Asia CMS in financially supporting Dhana Lama during her tenure.

Second Grade children - in answer to the following questions. (you may have seen some of these before, but they are worth another read.)

Why did God make mothers?

She is the only one who knows where the scotch tape is.
Mostly to clean the house.
To help us out of there when we were getting born.

What are mother’s made of?

God makes mothers out of clouds and angel hair and everything nice in the world and one dab of mean.
They had to get their start from men’s bones. Then they mostly use string, I think.

How did God make mothers?

He used dirt, just like for the rest of us.
Magic plus super powers and a lot of stirring.
God made my mom just the same like he made me. He just used bigger parts.

Why did God give you your mother and not some other mom?

We’re related.
God knew she likes me a lot more than other people’s mom like me.

Have a good week - MB
