YPMA

The Young Peoples Missionary Association (Y.P.M.A.) was established in 1957, this being the 500th anniversary of the founding of the Moravian Church.


The aims of the Y.P.M.A. are:-

  1. 
To encourage children and young people to learn more about overseas missionary work.


  2. To try and put children and young people in direct contact with many aspects of the overseas missionary work through the media of Y.P.M.A.


  3. To encourage them to share the knowledge they acquire about the overseas work with other people, both young and old.

  4. 
To support this work, where ever possible, by their own personal giving and prayer and encourage others who may not necessary be members of the Moravian Church to do the same.

Each Y.P.M.A. member is given a Y.P.M.A. collecting card.

We also have a Y.P.M.A. hymn:-
Jesus our King Thou art,
Our Saviour strong and true;
In Thy dear love we all are joined,
In Thee we live anew.
Bless us Thy reign to spread,
Thy great salvation tell,
Till all the world Thy name adore
And shout “Emmanuel”
(Rev. A. J. Lewis, M.A.)

ypma aquafilterAquaboxes

An Aquabox is a means of supplying safe water to those in desperate need.
It is a box that is filled with water and a filter and hand pump clipped to the side. The user then just has to pump to get drinking water.

Y.P.M.A. is providing 17 Aquaboxes, each suitable for providing drinking water for a whole school or village. In addition 7 smaller units suitable for a family has also been provided.

Motor Bikes for Western Tanzania

Motor bikes are being purchased for use in southern area of Western Tanzania. This is a very poor and dusty area of the province. These motor bikes will be used as transport between Moravian Church communities. Motor bikes have been chosen as it is the only economical form of transport due to very poor road conditions.

 

 

The total collected by YPMA members in 2014 was £9410.48
