The 2017 Global Exchange will take a group of U.S. Presbyterian women to Indonesia, September 12–29, 2017. Guided by Romans 1:12 (“. . . so that we may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith, both yours and mine”) participants will learn how to live respectfully in a multifaith culture and encourage and accompany one another as together they seek a more peaceful and just world. This fact-finding, relationship-building program will include one woman from each synod, who, following the trip, will share what she experienced with her synod. The application window has closed, but a participant listing and other information will be available soon. For additional information, contact PW’s associate for mission at 502/569-5402 or by email.
The U.S. women will be available to speak in their synods about the trip upon their return, and the January/February 2018 issue of Horizons will detail the trip. Indonesian women will complete the “exchange” part of the trip by attending the 2018 PW Gathering. Stay tuned for additional information.
