Urgent! Action Needed!

Missionaries Detained in Philippines

Help Free United Methodist Missionaries

Missionaries Detained in Philippines

Three United Methodist missionaries are being detained in the Philippines, and your help is urgently needed to secure their release. Please sign the petition to urge the Philippine government to release our church's missionaries.

Click here to sign the petition at umcmission.org/letthemleave

United Methodist Women leaders: Respond to this denomination-wide call to action by getting this word out in your units, circles and churches.

On Social Media:

Use the hashtags #LetThemLeave #TawandaKasamaMoKami (Translates to “Tawanda we are with you;” Tawanda is one of the missionaries.) 

It is important to stay on message of freeing the missionaries; posts critical of the Philippine government or that refer to alleged terrorism will not help and may hinder their release.

Thanks so much for your faithful action!

The petition has garnered more than 700 signatures in the first four hours live, with additional signatures expected in Philippines overnight. Please continue to share!

Look for a press release  at umcmission.org outlining a global call to prayer, which will begin Wednesday (6/27) at noon Eastern Standard Time.

The three missionaries continue to move forward through immigration processes with the advice of their attorneys in the Philippines. Global Ministries continues to pursue diplomatic channels, including the Philippine Embassy in Washington, D.C. and the U.S. Embassy in The Philippines.
