It was a joy to meet the members of the Ekklesiyar Yan’uwa a Nigeria (EYN) — the Church of the Brethren in Nigeria who were visiting the United States recently. The delegation included the President of EYN and the General Secretary. In addition to attending Song and Story Fest and Annual Conference, the group met with policy makers in Washington D. C. at an event organized by the Church of the Brethren Office of Public Witness, on the crisis of famine and violence in Nigeria. The event was intended to give policy makers and their staff background knowledge on local solutions, U.S. policy, and interfaith organizing happening in regards to Nigeria. On July 17th, the group met a few Oakton members for thoughtful conversation and then stayed the night at the parsonage. Thanks to Gretchen who was able to host a guest, as well. The next day, the group returned home to Nigeria. We pray for blessings on their continued ministry.
