On Sunday, June 24, Williamville UMC will host Carrie and Sean Blake (Carrie is Greg Valentine’s sister!). The Blakes, including three of their children have been living in Niamey, Niger, for the past couple of years. Their mission there is described at their website (blakemissions.com):
“Our family serves as long-term cross-cultural missionaries with SIM (Society for International Ministries). Our current (and possibly forever!) assignment is Niger, West Africa. Sean’s job is Countrywide Projects Manager and IT Consultant/ Administrator for Galmi Hospital and the SIM Niamey office. Carrie is working as a Midwifery Tutor and her current projects include teaching Medical English, helping to develop curriculum for a new nursing & midwifery school, and providing prenatal consultations for missionaries. Our favorite way to spend time? Drinking tea with our friends, learning about life in Niger, and discussing the differences and similarities between the Muslim and Christian faiths.”
We look forward to hearing from Carrie and Sean, who will be telling us about the important work they are doing, and encourage all to attend worship that Sunday.
