Thanks to Jordan Banda and Vyalema Khosas from Malawi for taking the time to visit us and share their story in Columbus this week. They were here to convey their appreciation to BSPC and continue our long relationship with the shallow well program which provides clean drinking water. After 30 years of operation, Marion Medical Mission, the shallow well program’s efforts have been dramatic, with infant and young childrens’ mortality rates in particularly sharp decline. More than one million people have benefited.
In addition to Sunday’s Palmer Hall presentation, Jordan and Vyalema were in Columbus for a few days this week. They volunteered in our Food Pantry, to express their support for those in need in our country, and they visited Ohio State and Amy Forrest’s organic farm to share their story and learn more about sustainable farming practices here.
For those of you who told us you forgot your checkbook at the Mission Fair in the Narthex the past couple of weeks or took home your giving sheet to consider which projects to support, you can bring your support this coming Sunday. Just drop your check in the offering place or sent it to the church office. The giving sheet is here to see the variety of ways to support global and national mission.
We give thanks to God for our mission partnerships and the ways we are invited to be part of God’s story in the world. Thank you for your support for our global & national mission partners!
