The next delegation from New Castle Presbytery will be traveling to Guatemala during the third week of January. This annual trip will continue to strengthen the relationships we have with our in-country partners. Activities will include visiting the staff at the CEDEPCA headquarters; meeting with the Board of the Association of Mam Christian Women for Development and seeing their projects throughout the countryside (microloans, family gardens, latrines); and even stopping by the workshop where the new fuel-efficient stoves are being manufactured to see them up close!
Participants received a double commissioning this past weekend – once at the Presbytery meeting on Saturday, then again at Westminster (Wilmington) on Sunday. We are also delighted to be traveling with a member from Presbytery of the James in Richmond, VA. Please hold all travelers up in prayer for a safe and meaningful trip. And be sure to watch for a flurry of blog postings in the coming weeks. ¡Vaya con Dios!
