Throughout our history, the people known as Friends (or Quakers) keep rediscovering an essential and enduring truth: There is one who speaks to our most basic needs and most significant hopes—Christ Jesus the Lord. Both individually and communally, we are learning to know and follow the Voice that guides us in the way we should go. Together, we seek to understand and obey that truth which sets us free. As a people, we share in the experience of that powerful life which makes all things new. Maybe you are searching for an authentic and transforming faith and community to call home—if so, come in and join us as we seek to know and follow Christ.

After the FUM/QMI/USFWI Triennial in July, we travelled home to visit family. We returned to Belize safely two weeks ago. We were grateful that Noa slept all the way across the Atlantic and while we found extreme heat in Belize, it has rained over the last couple of days...Read More

The FUM global community is grieving the passing of Eden Grace. Her legacy continues to make a transformative difference in lives and places where she served. This is especially true in Turkana. She was instrumental in starting the Girl Child Education program, supporting the training of pastors, assisting in the development of the board, and raising funds for the mission. Eden was always proud of her Turkanan name, Mama Ekile, meaning “mother to the healthy boy.”Read More
God is calling everyone to continually seek him through prayer. Some people pray expecting answers immediately, while others have lost the desire to pray due to unanswered prayer, lack of faith, or failure to understand their relationship with God. But this is not God’s will for us.Read More
As One Who Seeks First The Kingdom Of God We need not beg to enter into the presence of God. Whether we recognize it or not, we are always and forever loved and watched over by the Divine Spirit. Instead of seeking and knocking to get into the presence of God, we have to knock on the door to get out of the prison of worldliness we have built for ourselves out of the things that we thought we desired but which do not satisfy us.Read More
As One Who Listens Like many older people, my Dad spent his later years wearing a hearing device to amplify the voices around him. I’m sure he had a legitimate degree of hearing loss, but our family was often amused and sometimes irked by how Dad could miss something that was said clearly in front of him, yet pick up on a conversation going on in another room. Mom’s diagnosis was that Dad was just “hard of listening.”I wonder if that is how God might view me! How many times has God spoken clearly to me and I’ve completely missed it?Read More
