BIRMINGHAM, Ala.(BP) -- Misiones para Todos (Missions for All) is Woman's Missionary Union's new, bilingual digital resource for missions leaders in Hispanic churches.

"We assembled a task force comprised of a Hispanic pastor and Hispanic leaders around the country who work with various ages in a variety of cultural contexts. Research, along with their invaluable input and much prayer, led to the creation of Missions for All."
BIRMINGHAM, Ala.(BP) – "Missions Journey: Students" is Woman's Missionary Union's new digitally-formatted resource designed to provide ongoing missions discipleship curriculum for all student groups and to empower them to discover their own roles as disciples of Jesus who live on mission.

"It is the result of much research and input gleaned from current student ministers and leaders, both those familiar with WMU and those completely unfamiliar."
