Katherine Parker is a missionary from our California-Nevada conference.  She has been serving in Nepal, focusing on water, sanitation and hygiene, since 2013.  She will show slides and describe her work.  I’ve heard her speak before and found her stories fascinating.  Come learn about our Methodist-supported ministries.  All are invited.  Light refreshments will be served.  An offering will be taken to support Katherine’s work in Nepal.   An RSVP to Carolyn Bircher (cmbircher@gmail.com) would be appreciated, but not required.
