Leadership Visits to Brazil and Mozambique
Farewells were said at two separate Canadian airports last week as Dwight Lagore and Bill Green headed to Mozambique, and Earl Trekofski left for Brazil.
One of the objectives for the trips is to attend the Annual General Meetings (AGMs) which will be held over the next few weeks at both locations. This is an important time where the fields report on the previous year’s activities and those planned for the year to come. It is also a time to enjoy fellowship and strengthen ties.
Dwight and Bill will spend 2 weeks in Mozambique during which time they will attend the AGM. It is the first trip for Bill (Executive Director) to Mozambique, so he will experience first-hand the activities on that field. They will then join Earl Trekofski in Brazil for a week where they will attend the Brazil field’s AGM and visit current projects there as well.

Dwight and Bill got off to a bumpy start on Monday as their first flight was cancelled. Thankfully they were able to reschedule all their flights for the following day and have since arrived safely in Mozambique.

At the time of writing this post, Earl was still in transit to Brazil and we trust for his safe arrival at his destination as well. The next few weeks will be full, busy weeks for these men so your prayers are appreciated as they travel to all the places they must go and encourage the many people they will be in contact with!
