Susquehanna Conference receives gift from Mississippi Conference

Bishop Middleton has received a letter from Bishop Hope Morgan Ward of the Mississippi Conference. It includes the following message:

Grace and peace to you today.

Here in Mississippi we continue to keep you and your conference in our thoughts and prayers as you recover from the devastating floods last month. We are placing in the mail today a check for $50,000 in the hope that people in your episcopal area will be comforted and helped through the recovery.

Just as we have been helped by the overflowing generosity of the Susquehanna Conference in the recovery from Hurricane Katrina, we want to be engaged with you in this time of need. Pennsylvania has been the number one state in volunteers in the long recovery here.

With gratitude for your partnership in the ministry of Christ,

Bishop Hope Morgan Ward,
Mississippi Conference,
The United Methodist Church
