Celebrating Our First Anniversary Blog (6th of 6). Presbyterian Missions: Personal Observations

I applied to the Presbyterian Church for missionary service in a Muslim country in 1989. My application sat on a desk at the denomination headquarters, unprocessed, “like a ham at a bar mitzvah.” After four months I called up to see if there was something further I should do to complete the application. This is the story of what happened next.

  3. Which is it? “Go?” or “No Go?”
  4. An “Open Sesame” Event of Considerable Interest Occurs in Iraq
