MC: Global Letters for a Global Community--6

A Birthday Wish
We are writing to member care workers and all those with member care responsibility within international mission/aid who identify with the historic Christian faith. We write to encourage us all to stay the course in our service to God and humans and to take full advantage of the many opportunities to provide and develop member care. We write fully aware of the problems that can discredit, divide, and disable the church-mission community (CMC) and all of our member care efforts. We write with a commitment to the love that is necessary to resolve these problems and to promote health within the CMC.
I was born in 1956. And today I am 56 years old.
It’s great to be alive! The photo above is me, Kelly.
Circa 1956 in California.
So it’s my birthday and I have a special wish: for truth and peace to prevail in the Evangelical mission and member care community (Zech. 8:19). May the long-standing requests to meet with leaders be honoured--and for everybody concerned to do so with transparency, accountability, and courage. May healing light shine on the long-standing malaise. May we truly persevere in loving one another as Jesus Christ has loved us.
So what are we waiting for?
Meeting would be a great gift—for everybody.
Kelly for Michèle too
