Spend a fabulous weekend with leaders of Sunday Schools and youth groups in the United, Anglican, and Lutheran churches from Ottawa to Québec! Judy Steers and Jean-Daniel Williams have prepared an inspired itinerary of theology, Bible study, pastoral care, prayer, play, games, puppets, Play-Doh, glitter, dancing, singing, and a rubber chicken.
This urgent action has been requested by Mission & Service partners in Palestine and Israel.
Thank you for your quick and faithful action last summer 2015 which contributed to a reprieve for the village of Susiya in the southern West Bank. Without our global advocacy, the plight of Susiya might have gone unnoticed with tragic consequences.
