Pastor's Study February 2019
I am excited for an opportunity to go to East Africa May 10-25 with New Community Project. This Learning Tour is an encounter with East African culture, vitality, hospitality, spirituality, and wildlife in Rwanda, Uganda and South Sudan. I will be able to visit a refugee camp in South Sudan and meet Second Step girls, who are young women receiving scholarships from New Community Project to further their education in
college or trade school. I will learn more about the 1994 Rwandan genocide by visiting a museum and will meet women and girls from the Congo to hear about their involvement with New Community Project
programs. Lastly, I will be able to visit Akagera National Park and learn about the environmental issues
facing this region. This trip is being led by David Radcliff and I will be able to earn Continuing Education Units to assist me in maintaining my ordination in the Church of the Brethren. I’m looking forward to this opportunity to learn and grow and I cannot wait to come back and share my stories, my pictures and my
experiences with you. To learn more about New Community Project, you can check out their website at https://www.newcommunityproject.org/. Below are pictures from the East Africa Learning Tour of 2017.
