News from the Presbytery Office

Message from Debbie Blane, our new missionary at Nile Theological College, Sudan

Dear Friends,
A note to let you know that I am safely in Sudan! I have a two bedroom apartment to live in right now – it is older, but the design is a good one. Am being cared for, today I got a new SIM card for the cell phone that I purchased in Nairobi. In the meantime the college has wireless, Praise God! I would love to hear from you, it may take me time to get back to folks so please don’t feel neglected if you don’t hear from me for a while.
Many Blessings, Debbie
