One year later: USA Mission Experience to San Francisco/Bay Area

One year ago, Janet Theus was preparing to travel with Presbyterian Women sisters to the Bay Area for nine days, to be a part of the 2016 USA Mission Experience. You can read her full account here, but below are a few excerpts:

We were going to witness the faithful work being done by our sisters in the San Francisco and San Jose’ presbyteries.  Their work and dedication to God’s promise of a beloved community would prove to be the most amazing experience of this Mission trip.

Our goals were: (1) Learn about victims of sexual trafficking, human slavery, domestic violence, the homeless, and immigration issues. (2) Develop skills to advocate for these victims and (3) Explore personal stories to examine the myths and realities associated with these victim’s experiences and (4) Identify resources to help eliminate these scourges against humanity.

Mission service for our upcoming meeting

Looking through Together in Service (2012), I noticed an unusual option:

Torn bandage request form

You may remember tearing sheets into 3- to 4-inch strips and rolling them tightly to form simple bandages. At one time, these were an important part of the Together in Service program. They were sent to medical clinics in developing countries. However, that project has outlived its usefulness. The bandages now sit in boxes in the Brethren Service Center in Maryland, awaiting a new purpose. With that in mind, PW’s Churchwide Coordinating Team and the Brethren Service Center have made an agreement to offer the fabric strips to anyone who wants them.
