Mission Conversations: Co-Workers to Peru
The Mission and Outreach Work Group continues its Mission Conversations zoom series by inviting Mission Co-Workers overseas to speak about their experiences. While we wait for the ability to travel again, you are invited to zoom to Peru for an early lunch on Thursday Feb 11 to meet two PC(USA) Mission co-workers to Peru: Jed and Jenny Koball.
Jed accompanies the Joining Hands Network in Peru as they identify and interpret root causes of poverty in Peru, such as mining contamination, global warming, and unfair trade agreements. He Jed facilitates the relationship between the Joining Hands network in Peru and PC(USA) congregations as they develop strategies together to address these daunting problems.
Jenny coordinates the Young Adult Volunteers (YAV) program in Peru, organizing volunteer and cultural immersion experiences in Peru for US young adults and shepherding them and the receiving organizations in a year of service, mutual learning and the building of Christian Community.
