CELEBRATING 70 YEARS OF THE ADVANCE: GOD'S LOVE AT WORK IN SOCIAL JUSTICE
In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said that whatever we do for "the least of these" we do for God. For 70 years, since 1948, The Advance has given United Methodists and their predecessors the opportunity to serve those who are "the least" in the world's eyes - the marginalized, the poor, and the disadvantaged.
The Mission for Migrant Workers (Advance #14241A) is one of many Advance projects devoted to justice for those who find themselves oppressed by power structures in which they have no voice. MFMW is a beacon of hope in the often isolating and abusive life of migrant domestic workers throughout the world, offering a safe haven for women and children seeking refuge and mediation.
