Learning to be the Church

A letter from Tracey King-Ortega, Regional Liaison for Central America, based in Nicaragua

The mission newsletter linked here is the fulfillment of a dream of mine and a lot of work on behalf of many, many Presbyterians. Please read Tracey's beautiful report here:

Our Presbytery works very close with Tracey who serves as the regional liaison for Central America with our Presbyterian World Mission. With Tracey's leadership and abundant support from the Honduras Mission Network including our presbytery, we have begun a comprehensive program in theological education in support of our Presbyterian brothers and sisters in Honduras. This program has been a long time in coming, and I am abundantly grateful that this is now happening. We need your financial support to sustain this vital ministry. Please give generously.
