Some Unplanned Benefits of The Traveling Ministry Corps
Have you ever set out to accomplish one goal and found that you were actually achieving three other things all along? The 2018 Traveling Ministry Corps trainings were like that.
As planned, we gathered the new and returning ministers in Bolivia and the U.S. We had practice in public speaking and in deep listening. They’re inspired and ready to go - I encourage you to invite them to your meeting or church very soon. You can read more about them in our e-newsletter or on our website.
But the less public benefits of creating this corps of ministers are just as important. Connections created by the visits to all the affiliated yearly meetings in Bolivia and Perú; introducing young leaders in Central America and Mexico to one another; the opportunity for a Cuban Friend to share his extraordinary spiritual gifts outside his small country; the collaboration on the public presentation with Pendle Hill in the U.S; the connections between women leaders across yearly meeting lines in Bolivia.
These are all immeasurable achievements. And they are all the work of FWCC.
Your gift makes this happen. Both to do the work and to tell the stories of the seeds of hope we plant, the friendships we nurture, the in-breaking of the Holy Spirit in the lives of ordinary Friends. Thank you for being part of the the Friends World Committee.
In Friendship,Robin Mohr
