When: Monday, June 17, 2013 

Time: 12:30pm to 2:25pm

Where: George Fox University, Lemmons Lecture Hall, Room #8 

We are looking forward to this time of sharing some of the ways we can be a part of the “Hands & Feet” of Jesus in helping others in their time of need. We expect various reports to be given from Brethren across the Brotherhood on what activities they find to be effective and to be a blessing in the lives of others.

Groups that will be sharing include:

Brethren Charity Fund (OH), Christian Disaster Service (OH), SEEK Ministries (OH), Indiana Brethren Charity Fund (IN), Disaster Cleanup (KS), L.A.M.B. Services (CA), CAM Rapid Response Disaster Team (CA), CAM West (OR), CAM/SALT Update, Haiti Update, Well of Hope – Africa Ministry, Macedonian Ministry Update, China Update, & Others

We hope that everyone can have some time to share. This will allow for each presenter to have around 7 minutes, with the goal of having a “question and answer” time at the end.

Please help pass the word around for this meeting! We would love to have a full room!

To God be the all the Glory – He alone is Worthy!!
