Wendy Gist

Mission Advocate for Hunger, Poverty and Peacemaking

Wendy’s priorities expanded significantly when the Justice, Peacemaking and Mission Committee was formed in 2015. She continues to live into this expanded portfolio in the coming year, now including SDOP (Self-Development of People).

We discussed the success of our first annual Presbytery Work Day, and have plans to enable more participation next summer.

Wendy led her seond second youth trip to Peru in the Summer of 2017.

We still hope to invite several new participants for our first-ever installation in Peru’s capital city of Lima. This will be a great opportunity because Lima is more accessible and closer to sea level, and the culture of Lima is rich and fascinating. The hope is that the Lima trip will be in Spring 2018.
