Africian Missionary Conference

 

UMC African Missionaries LO-3751

Mary and I just returned from Johannesburg, South Africa. A wonderful 4 days visiting and learning from other missionaries.  This event had more than 100 United Methodist Missionaries from across Africa representing 17 countries.

How important it is for us to talk together and learn from each other.

One of our recurring discussions is the strength of sending UMC missionaries from everywhere.

“From Everywhere to Everywhere”

Most Global missionaries are serving in countries which are not their home.  This creates a strength and a vulnerability. What a beautiful arrangement.
