Robin Mohr is now visiting Friends in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador and will lead programs on the Living Water theme.
"Cradles of Andean Quakerism" is the theme for the 2014 pilgrimage. Friends in Bolivia and Peru will host this first-ever FWCC pilgrimage to yearly meetings in South America, for youth ages 16-18.
Come to this weekend workshop June 7-9, hosted jointly by FWCC and both Pelham and Yonge Street Half Yearly Meetings. The site is Camp NeeKauNis in Waubaushene, Ontario.
A successful year of Living Water programs:
Plans are beginning to take shape for the 2014 Section Consultations that will take place between January and April 2014. Each consultation will consist of a residential weekend conference with participants representing multiple yearly meetings and branches of Friends.
The Central Executive Committee has accepted the invitation received from the National Evangelical Friends Church of Peru to host the 2016 International Representatives Meeting of Friends. Formerly known as the 'Triennial", this meeting will take place four years after the World Conference of Friends in Kenya.
Membership statistics are ever-changing and each yearly meeting counts their numbers by a different formula, but by our best estimates, the number of Quakers in the world has grown by almost 40,000 members, or about 12% since the last published map in 2007.
