Young Adults in Global Mission

They lived in Palestine last year through a program of the ELCA called Young Adults in Global Mission or YAGM.  That’s lots of initials in one sentence.  For more about the ELCA click here.  For more about YAGM click here.

Anyway, they came back to the states and got jobs in the school district here in Hutchinson and have been part of River of Hope. It was due time for them to share their experiences with River of Hope and so they did just that this last Sunday.  They gave us a brief history lesson of the area, which is pretty hard to do.  They did it.  Then they simply told us stories of life there through the people they met and lived with, through students they worked with, and through their daily lives. It broke my heart wide open in that painful and even beautiful way that Good News can.

Do you have questions for them?  Do you want to hear more?  You have 2 opportunities to join them in an informal setting to hear more about their lives and to ask questions:

This Sunday, (Oct 19), after worship at Madcake. Bring your lunch money and your questions.


Tuesday, Oct 21 at 7pm at the VFW. (Once inside, go down the ramp to the door without the door bell.)
