Wesley Missionary Institute

A steadily widening field of ministry for Free Methodists in the West Africa region has also increased the need for gospel workers. But it is not just any gospel workers we need. We need servants of the Lord who have cross-cultural training, orienting them with a love for people of all cultures and preparing them with skills to adapt to the ways of a culture not their own. The Lord’s people have done this for centuries! But, training ensures we will engage with as many of the opportunities as we possibly can. Wesley Missionary Institute aims to raise up workers of this kind.

Global Covid-19 Outbreak

During this period of global concern about the COVID-19 virus, we want to let you know that at present, none of our FMWM missionary team are known to have contracted the virus. We know of COVID-19 cases among Free Methodist in every world area in which we have work. FMWM staff and Area Directors receive a daily briefing via email provided by safety and security experts to help us stay informed of concerns that could impact FM personnel. We’re not looking to engage in the “safest” ministry, but to go where the Holy Spirit is leading. As we go into more and more difficult places, we believe it’s prudent to mitigate risks wisely, but not fearfully.

In consultation with the FMC-USA Board of Bishops and FMWM Leadership it has been decided that all short-term ministry trips are to be postponed at this time. Our goal is to resume sending volunteers again after January 1, 2021, however, we will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates should the situation change.

Please continue to pray for:

  • An end to the spread of the virus
  • The health of our FMWM team and national leaders
  • The healing touch of the Father on those who have become ill
  • Believers to see and use each opportunity to share hope among those who are fearful
