Ever since we returned to
Yesterday, I visited Sion UMC in Obala, and presented three special gifts from St. Andrew UMC in
Second, the church received a video camera. It is St. Andrew’s hope that Pastor Lemec will use it to take footage of church services and activities, then send it back to
But the third gift was actually the most beloved – a church directory.
After the service, I watched church members crowd around the book, which sat on the lectern. They flipped through the pages slowly, looking at every picture. One woman said, “Look at all the families!” Another man stopped and pointed every time he saw a person of color in the directory.I have never seen a church directory better used and valued. I felt a true connection was taking place, a bond of love and unity. That’s what the church partnership is all about.
