Every three years, Joji & I report back to our sending agency, Mennonite Church Canada, in our capacity as lead peace and reconciliation missionaries at PeaceBuilders Community. During a NAM tour, we are assigned to speak at various church organizations, inter-faith gatherings, peace advocacy groups, and academic institutions. We arrived in Vancouver, British Columbia in the evening of 10 September. Our NAM tour included Winnipeg and Manitoba Area, Greater Toronto and Southern Ontario Area, Washington DC Area, Virginia, and then back to the Greater Vancouver Area and British Columbia.
Joji will be back in Davao on the second week of November; I will be back at the end of November.
I’m still here in Vancouver, enjoying the love of my daughters, sons-in-law, and grand-children. I’m also doing some readings at The University of British Columbia (UBC) to help our faith-based peacebuilding organization to be more informed and effective in our justice-based peace advocacy.
