As you know our Mission emphasis for this quarter is our work in Belize, so we don’t want you to miss this opportunity to hear from and visit with our newly hired Pastor/Church Planter, Oscar Mmbali (mm’ba’li), who will be serving Friends United Meeting (FUM) at BELIZE FRIENDS CENTER in Belize City. He has spent several months in Kenya seeking support for this mission work and is now traveling in the U.S. to seek our support.

He felt the call of God a number of years ago while attending Friends Bible College (FBC) in Kenya to serve Friends in Belize, but has waited and continued in his education, training, and serving in other capacities until the way finally opened to fulfill this call.

Marshalltown First Friends and Honey Creek New Providence Friends will be joining us. A lunch will be served in the fellowship hall with opportunity to have further discussion and ask more questions.
