This joint West Wight Mission Community service will be held at Christ Church, Totland Bay. The focus of the service will be the work of Tearfund.
We will be joined, via Zoom, by Tearfund workers: Simon and Elizabeth Mitchell.
Simon is a retired G.P. He has been a Tearfund speaker for 14 years and travelled to several Tearfund supported countries in Africa, Asia and South America. He comes back from these trips really enthused about what Tearfund is doing, and loves having the opportunity to pass this on to others. Elizabeth is a very experienced public speaker. She has delivered Q and A sessions covering economic development and trade issues and speaks regularly to various groups in a church setting. Elizabeth has visited our work in Malawi, Thailand, Uganda and Honduras. Asked about what she enjoys about being part of our speaker team she said “It is a privilege to share in a very small way with the work of partners doing heroic work in difficult circumstances and to encourage others to join that work.
