  • We would consider any Sunday in October or during the week if that would work out better. Wednesday night works fairly well because we have youth group and Bible study then and we are always looking for an excuse to have a carry-in dinner. We are interested to find out things like probable cost. We have people in the congregation who can provide housing and we can provide local transportation. We look forward to hearing more details from you. I went through South Africa on my way to speak at a woman’s health conference in Botswana.

    We just had a Global Ministries intern from Armenia here May 7th.
