Greetings from Reno. Mary and I had a great drive from Portland following commissioning. Its amazing to me how often we can share the missionary story as we move about, grocery store, gas stations, even at the “In and Out” burger.
We have been so warmly welcomed from the Methodist Churches here.Last Saturday evening, Reno First UMC held a dinner (yes a pot luck) to honor our ministry and the people of Congo.
Mary and I gave a presentation on the DRC and the missions that are already operating. We had about 50 people in attendance for our 30 min presentation asking questions for an additional hour. What an audience.
Blessed we are to have the congregation at Reno First UMC to support the ministries of the DRC.
Sunday morning Mary preached to a combined church service held with Sparks UMC, St. Paul’s and Reno First. This service was held outside following a combined community work day. How nice it was to combine local mission with mission in the Congo.
Next stop Ohio. Come join us this Sunday May 29 at Gay Street UMC, Mt. Vernon.
