For those of you who attend the “World Day of Prayer” service (a global, ecumenical movement of Christian women joined together to observe a common day of prayer each year) on Friday, March 6th, there is an opportunity to also get to know one of our KUC congregants a little better.
Each year, a different country writes the service materials. This year, the writing country is Zimbabwe.
Zimbabwe has a special place in Janeen’s heart. She, along with her husband Johs (pronounced Yos) visited Zimbabwe when Johs, a medical doctor, covered for 6-week furloughs for the Canadian doctor working at the Salvation Army Mission Hospital there.
Janeen has many articles from her 3 “visits” to Zimbabwe; items she and Johs purchased and many they received as gifts. Janeen will have a variety of her Zimbabwe “treasures” on display at the World Day of Prayer service. Should you ask, she’ll likely share some of her precious memories, too.
1 pm, Fri., March 6 at St. Andrews Presbyterian Church (1136 6th Avenue)
7 pm, Fri., March 6 at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church (635 Tranquille).
