Oklahoma congregations can hear firsthand how God is at work around the world when three missionaries visit the state in late August and late September.

1. A Tulsa native and former member of Tulsa-Christ UMC, missionary Mary McKnight Escobar serves in Paraguay as director of a daycare center for young children. The center is in a poor neighborhood of Asunción.

Escobar is available to visit Oklahoma churches between Aug. 24 and Sept. 4.

2. Missionary couple Emmanuel and Florence Mefor will visit Oklahoma churches Sept. 29-30.

Emmanuel is a medical doctor assigned to the Mutambara Mission Hospital in Zimbabwe along with Florence, who is a nurse midwife. Dr. Emmanuel specializes in eye surgery.

The hospital includes a maternity unit, female and male wards, outpatient department, AIDS unit, mother and child health wellness care, rehabilitation, pharmacy, and a school of nursing, as well as an eye unit.
