UCG’s “Good Works” Program

March 15, 2012

The United Church of God’sGood Works” arm has a couple of projects taking place in the coming months that you may be interested in knowing about, and praying for.

Hydroponic Organic Gardening

From May 13 to May 22, 2012, Jonathan Magee, Milan Bizic and Sarah Bizic will travel to Guatemala to assist local brethren in a joint Good Works and Youth Corps project. The main goal of the project will be to establish hydroponic and organic farming infrastructure to produce food for personal use and to sell. We will be providing an update to introduce the volunteers shortly.

More information on this project will be given at Good Works and at LifeNets.

The United Church of God is providing the three Youth Corps workers. The Good Works program is providing the air travel to Guatemala. LifeNets is providing the supplies.

You may be interested in more of the details of the project as outlined on the Good Works website.

Good Works, Youth Corp and the Legacy Institute

The Legacy Institute is a non-profit organization that “seeks to improve the quality of life of people everywhere, both spiritually and physically.”

One aspect of the Legacy Institute is the Legacy Foundation. The Foundation sponsors a number of projects in Thailand—including the Legacy Leadership Training Center. Located in Chiang Mai, the purpose of the center is to improve the quality of life of the underprivileged. The students are generally from the hill areas of Thailand and Burma.

In the past, the United Church of God, through United Youth Corp has partnered with the Legacy Institute to provide volunteer opportunities for young adults. These volunteers have served as teachers at the Legacy Leadership Training Center. We are happy to once again be rekindling this partnership. Good Works has agreed to sponsor a volunteer to travel to Thailand this summer. We will update shortly with more specifics.

Further details about upcoming projects are available on our Good Works website.
