Surprise! We even had some men wanting to put up their footprints! The Indian gentleman with my husband Alf is Rev. Christopher Meesaalu, who knew and was mentored by missionary Anne Ediger, who was my husband's grandmother's cousin. He ministers to several remote villages in Telangana State in India. Christopher was deeply moved to find several members of Anne Ediger's extended family at MWC and he expressed his deep appreciation for her influence on his life. It was a moving experience!
I had an interesting conversation (partly in English, partly in French) with EKIEN-E-EKIAG BAUDOUIN from the Mennonite Church in Durban who is involved in planting a Mennonite Church in South Africa. He was interested in hearing about how the women are organized in Canada and wants to begin a relationship with MW Canada. It will be interesting to see what develops from our exchange of email addresses!
One more day and then we'll pack up the display!
