"We go with deep gratitude for the opportunity, with deep faith that God will use us for good in Africa and the certainty that we will learn much, an openness to being changed and challenged, and unbridled excitment and joy! Please pray for us all as we make this long journey of faith." Susan Clayton
From August 5-18, 2008, 14 members of IPC will travel to the Mwandi Mission in Zambia, Africa for a medical and nonmedical mission experience. One IPC team member is already there. Team members are:
Laura Ann Baker
Elaine Van Cleave
We have medical professionals who will be working in the hospital and lab and HIV/AIDS program, as well as non-medical folks who will be working around the mission compound in the hospital, school, orphan center, old folks' home, etc. We will do whatever work is needed and will also engage in a Vacation Bible School with some of the children of the area. Please keep our team in your prayers, and please pray always for our brothers and sisters in Christ in this and other places around the world.
Susan Clayton, Associate Pastor
