Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA – On November 8, a dozen religious leaders from the greater Lancaster and Harrisburg, PA area met for breakfast to converse with MWC President Danisa Ndlovu.
The focus was leader-to-leader visiting, sharing joys and concerns about their own churches and parishes. The session was chaired by Kate Good, Executive Director of Parish Resource Center, the local inter-church organization which hosted the breakfast.
Then Danisa Ndlovu, from Zimbabwe, shared his own story, his own journey of faith, and his joys and concerns about the global church.
The breakfast guests were fascinated to hear about the plans for 6,000 to 10,000 persons from around the world coming to Harrisburg next July for the Mennonite World Conference Assembly.
Their comments were supportive. Several said that they themselves may want to attend and join in the global celebration with fellow Christians from more than 50 countries.
In the closing moments, Father Fisher turned to President Ndlovu and asked, "What can we do to help?" It was a touching moment as these prominent leaders from throughout the region gathered around the MWC President and prayed for him and the upcoming Assembly.
