December Gathering

With many people already travelling or with other obligations, only a few of us were able to gather in December, but we enjoyed our third annual Christmas gathering at Willi and Dali’s!

The Fortunate Few: IVS Volunteers from Asia to the Andes

We did capture any pictures at our September gathering, but we did get an addition to the Columbia Mennonite Fellowship library!

International Voluntary Services was founded after World War II by Mennonites, Brethren and Quakers seeking to be agents of peace in places of great brokenness and need. Our very own Willi Meyers served with IVS in Vietnam and has given us a copy of the book for any who want to read it. (Sarah will keep it with the hymnals.)
