Leprosy Mission Sunday 7th February
Halmer End Methodist Church will welcome Allister du Plessis, Midland Regional Manager for Leprosy Mission, to our morning worship. Allister will share news about the work of the Mission with us.

In the Bible, in Luke's gospel (Chapter 17 verses 11 to 19), Luke the doctor, writes about Jesus healing 10 people with Leprosy.

Today, Leprosy Mission England and Wales supports work in 11 countries in Africa and Asia to bring help, relief and healing to people with Leprosy.

They are passionate about bringing people with leprosy the cure from the disease, and treatment to restore sight to eyes and limbs to use, but there is much more to what they do than medical treatment. Around the world they reach out to people who are the poorest of the poor and rejected by their families and communities. Leprosy Mission offers elderly disabled people a safe place to live where they will be loved and cared for. They give children who have been pushed out of school an education. They provide young people affected by leprosy with training so that they can get a job. Support is given to all — regardless of religion or ethnicity. In the name of Jesus they reach out with his love, compassion, and life-changing acceptance.

Our picture shows people with Leprosy being treated at a foot clinic in Mozambique. Each year 200,000 people are newly diagnosed with Leprosy and 3 million people live with permanent disability caused by it.

The Methodist Church in Halmer End supports the work of Leprosy Mission.
