Evangelism Training Conference – ENGAGE

Ray Jones is the leader, and he has been very effective across the country with this event.  Ray is an accomplished new church development pastor from Georgia.  If this is to be effective for your churches, the pastor and a team of leaders will need to attend together.  Click here for more information.
Work Camp Building Project in Mozambique
Teams are being recruited for two-week segments between August 1 and September 9 to build a church in Mozambique. Further information is available from Penny McFarland (jdmcfarland@comcast.net).
Travel Expenses for Ingrid Reneau
Ingrid Reneau is doing research on south Sudan cattle camps at the Akrofi-Christaller Institute (ACI) in Ghana.  Influencing this culture is a critical task for the Sudanese Church.  Ingrid will travel to Ghana four times in the next year ($1,000 per trip).  We are receiving contributions for “Ingrid Reneau, ACI travel assistance” at the Presbytery Office.
Report on Visit to Khartoum, Sudan
Steve and Brenda Stelle, Dave Dawson, and Sylvia Carlson (Redstone Presbytery) joined by Michael Weller, our Regional Liason for Sudan and Ethiopia, have returned from a one-week trip visiting our partner, the Sudan Presbyterian Evangelical Church.  A brief report from Rev. Dawson is posted on the Presbytery website.  Steve and Brenda Stelle will also give a report at the April 24 Presbytery meeting.
