A NOTE FROM NAOMI:
Hello Friends and Family!!
I have decided to step out in faith and experience a different part of the world. I will be going to live in Bangladesh for a year, serving and learning alongside the people in Mymensingh, Bangladesh through Mennonite Central Committee’s (MCC) Serving and Learning Together (SALT) program.
Naomi will have the option to return tp PMC as our nursery coordinator if she desires after her year of service.
Send Curt your best pics and he will post them here. :)
Paul and Serena Manickam will be starting a one-year term with Mennonite Mission Network this summer in Iquitos, Peru. They will be serving with a Mennonite church there through children's ministry, education, and gardening. Prayer cards will be available the Sunday after retreat; in the meantime, please visit their blog for more info or help them reach their fundraising goal.
Your prayers, encouragement, and financial support are all appreciated.
The 16th annual NAMIWalks Northwest is happening on May 20. It is a 5K walk that starts at noon on the Eastbank Esplanade. I am forming a team (Strength in Numbers) as a way of making a statement that mental health and access to care are important! The funds we raise will help keep NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) programs available to all who need them, at no cost to participants.
If you would like to join the team or if you would like to sponsor us, please text or call me at (503) 453-7805.
