At our July 12 visit with leaders from Tanzania Mennonite Church (KMT), they invited us to visit. Conference leadership is inclined to accept this invitation and explore sending a delegation to Tanzania.
Plans are coming together for the two major fall gatherings:
- Sept 29-30: All Teams retreat – conference leadership teams meet
- Nov 6-8: Pastor Gathering (see below for more details)
Dan is attending most area council meetings as they resume this fall. The CAMFELL area met on Tuesday this week and the semi-annual Michigan Leaders Summit meets September 14.
- Dan Miller and Paula Killough join North Main in Nappanee on September 24.
- Dan Miller will worship with Mara Christian Church of America, Indianapolis on October 1. (His August 20 visit was postponed due to a funeral in North Carolina that many attended.)
Tim Lichti, John Powell and Dan Miller joined a phone call with Mennonite agencies working in Detroit. We continue to sense God drawing our hope and attention to Detroit. We support networking efforts among those “on the ground” to encourage and support Anabaptist presence in that city.
Dan met with leaders of Valparaiso and Hopewell Mennonite churches on August 21.
- Mid-states leaders (Illinois, Ohio, Central District and IMMC) met August 22.
- Six pastors/spouses from IMMC and Central District attended a Pastor Getaway at Oakwood Inn.
