Tuesday evening, June 27, here at Central, over 20 people heard Charles and Melissa Johnson tell in words and pictures about their mission in Zambia. Their work as you may have heard, is very hands on with their partner, the Church of Central Africa Presbyterian’s Zambia Synod and is strongly focused on teaching better farming practices and crop storage to improve food security in the area.
It was a very interactive presentation with many excellent question from the attendees. To those who were there we extend our thanks. We know from your comments that you were inspired, as were we, by what has been accomplished so far. If you were not able to come, you will be glad to learn that we all will have the chance to hear more about the Johnson’s and their mission over the next several months, as Central has now officially partnered with Charles and Melissa and thus will be receiving regular updates, on their progress, to be share with everyone.
In return, as a partner, Central has promised to encourage the Johnsons with our prayers, our money and our support. This year we will be sending them $2,000, through Presbyterian World Mission. Material about Charles and Melissa and their mission is still available in the rear of each worship area as well as envelopes to make individual contributions to show your own support of their work.
Special Thanks to Lynne and Terry Phillips for hosting the Johnsons overnight in their home and for providing refreshments for the evening. They had excellent help from Nancy Spurgeon and Carolyn Goldsberry.
