Our Global Outreach
We send Friends to find ways to bless the people and nations where they live. It’s one of our answers to Jesus’ call to love God and love our neighbors, at home and throughout the world.
We’re yearning for Spirit-led ministry that bears fruit, whether or not it results in a Friends faith community. The Friends we send are rooted in a relationship with Jesus Christ and aligned to NWYM Faith and Practice. We seek to express God’s love in thought, word, and deed. We pray that this love-as-service extends the Kingdom of God.
Please click through to find more information about the people we send, and how you can help send them—or how you can offer your own gifts and presence internationally.
It’s work that’s sometimes frustrating and always blessed. Please pray about how you could participate—
- to serve internationally in short-term or long-term ways,
- to donate financially,
- to pray for the workers and the people they serve,
- to volunteer or lend other key support through your church.

Karen Swenson has been serving in Hungary since January 1998 (and in the Teaching Abroad program since 2002). Her focus is to assist missionary families in meeting the educational needs of their children. Through her tutoring and teaching, Karen provides opportunities and assistance to students who are being homeschooled and students whose needs are not being met in other settings. Because of her efforts, missionary families are able to remain on the field and continue their ministry.
