One Great Hour of Sharing

Both of our denominations, United Methodist and Presbyterian Church(USA), ask their congregations to take a special offering at Easter, an offering that both call: One Great Hour of Sharing.

These offerings support the mission of our denominations to help people who suffer from disasters like tornadoes or hurricanes or floods; to assist people who are hungry by providing food aid and promoting better programs of agriculture; to provide resources to support the self-development of communities.

Live News from our Guatemala Team at guatemaladiary22013

Andy Gay will be pecking away at his Kindle - which amazingly has connectivity in most of Guatemala - to give daily reports as to what is going on with Lauren, Ian, himself, and the rest of our presbytery team!  He has set up a diary page on our church web site to receive his reports.  Just go to http://cowanfellowship.org/?q=guat22013 

Shots and stuff: Day -3

Ian and Lauren are getting the hepatitis and typhoid shots in Nashville today. I'm scheduled for Chattanooga Friday morning for mine. Start the anti-malarial antibiotic tomorrow. Doug Thomas at 1st United Methodist Church in Tullahoma called me yesterday to say that he had heard of our trip - and that they had one of their teams leaving on Saturday, same as us. They are leaving a little later in the morning from Nashville. That should be an interesting angle for Ian since Ian is a reporter for the Tullahoma News and is planning on doing a feature for the trip.
