Nazarene Missions International (NMI) Purpose & Strategy:
To mobilize the church in mission through praying discipling, giving and educating.
- The church prays for global mission endeavors
- The church provides opportunities, especially for children and youth, to become involved in the mission of the church and to respond to God's call.
- The church gives at least 5.5 percent of current income for the World Evangelism Fund and to other ministries/offerings as possible.
- The church utilizes mission resources and participates in ministries to develop global awareness.
--Christy Boes, SWID NMI President

CRISIS CARE KIT / SCHOOL PAL PAK Collection Information
We delivered 125 CCK boxes, 14 School Pal Pak boxes and 6 boxes of clothing to the Fawn Grove Compassion Center (FGCC) on 10/3/2017. This is the largest load ever taken from SWID. On top of that, we left behind 68 additional boxes. The Indianapolis NCM warehouse located at the Shelbyville Church of the Nazarene received more than they could store and suggested that we either store ours here or make a 2nd trip. A 2nd trip was made on October 16 with over 100 boxes on the truck (some from Indy which helped relieve their storage problem).. Thank you, thank you, thank you.... is what we heard from the FGCC team as we unloaded the boxes (both times). Most likely, these boxes will be sent to the Carribbean area in the weeks ahead.
Please don't forget to pay the warehousing and handling fees: $12 for each CCK box (ACM1297) and $10 for each School Pal Pak box (ACM 1788). The next collection will be taken April 2018. CCK Instructions School Pal Pak Instructions and Used Clothing Instructions. How-to Video on packing School Pal Paks.
Please plan to attend SWID EQUIP day on November 4th. I will be providing packing information and answering questions during the 2 NMI sessions.

The SWID W&W team did site prep, poured a concrete slab and erected a metal building that will be used as a District Compassion Center in Dilkon, AZ.

A second SWID W&W trip was made to Dilkon, AZ on September 18 - 29, 2017. Doug and Dede Jones were invited back by SNAD W&W coordinator to prepare for and lead a Chicago First Church team that would be arriving September 23rd. Below are a few of the pictures of progress made prior to the team's arrival. More pictures will be added. Thank you, Doug for your leadership and hard work! This building will be a compassion center for the SNAD district. This is only phase 1 (of 3). God is working in the hearts of Native Americans and SWID and friends are playing a part.
