Open M

The mission of OPEN M, a Christian ministry, is to provide pathways out of poverty for all by feeding the hungry, caring for the sick, and strengthening the community. We do this by offering five programs to the community, all with the common goal of breaking the cycle of poverty and improving the health of the community, one family at a time.

.Larry and Jane Kies, missionaries at Africa University in Zimbabwe,  have been supported by Granger UMC for some time now. They have sent us a report for 2019 and 2020 of what is happening with their mission work with Africa University. In 2016 Mike and Virginia came with

others others to hear our presentation at an Akron church, and gave us a number of 'goodies', including the glass mug in the attached pictures. So we [Larry and Jane], have

often thought of your congregation, and had an even stronger feeling than usual that we are here on your behalf. Below are the 2019 and 2020 reports sent from Larry and Jane Kies.
