Governing Board Meeting Narrative, January 7th, 2020
The Governing Board wishes you all the best for the upcoming year and we hope that your holiday season was filled with peace.
We lift in prayer our friends and colleagues: in Australia as they live with brutal fires devastating their lands; in Puerto Rico as our communities struggle with the aftermath of earthquakes; in Canada, Iran, Iraq, and Britain as these countries grieve the loss of family and friends following a plane being hit by a missile in Iran; in the Philippines, where a volcano near Manilla is spewing ash and debris into the air and appears to be set to erupt; and in the United States Midwest, where tornadoes ripped through many communities leaving a path of destruction. God, hear our prayers.
It is hard, in the midst of such life altering realities, to move into the ongoing work of the Governing Board and we do so while holding these prayers in our hearts.
Here is a summary of the business we dealt with in our most recent Governing Board Meeting....
