Many Thanks,

Pictures from Joy

Joy Waughtal (daughter of Resurrection member Julie Jensen) continues to serve in the ELCA Youth Adult in Global Mission program in South Africa. In March Julie and Dave Jensen traveled to see Joy and brought back some pictures of the people and places where Joy is serving.

With Joy are Pastor Trevor Sibande, Executive Secretary for the Central Diocese (Asst. to the Bishop) and Amanda Thompkins, another YAGM missionary from Pennsylvania

Joy serves the ELCA's partner church ELCSA in their Central Diocese. A Diocese is similar to our Synod structure.

This is where Joy is staying while in South Africa
