GO Week ||  March 4-10th, 2018

Global Outreach Week (GO Week) is our annual week dedicated to providing awareness of the ways God is working and the needs that still exist around the world. This year we’ll have 5 days of events, some for women, some for men and some for all. In line with our newly claimed mantra,  we’re highlighting God’s work “HERE, THERE and EVERYWHERE”! Come and welcome and engage with our guest missionaries for 2018, David Manfred (serving in Cambodia) and Hannah Hwang (serving in Taiwan.)

 David Manfred: David and his wife Chris have 4 children and 3 grandchildren and have served in Cambodia since 1995. David studied at the University of MN and received Christ through the ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ in 1979, served as a tent-making missionary in Japan through the mid-1980s and in 1985 married his wife, Chris. In 1995 when their first three children were 6, 4 and 1 they left the United States for service in Cambodia. David currently works with the C&MA in Cambodia as the Field Director for the Alliance mission work throughout Cambodia. David notes that Cambodia is not a closed access country so they can speak quite freely about the ministry work there. The Manfreds are oh Home Assignment, residing in Saint Paul, MN and will return to Cambodia in July 2018.
