Published December 27, 2018 by Brenda Kauffman in Uncategorized

Saturday, January 19, 2019 “MCC Service in Vietnam, A Personal Story: From War to Forgiveness”  Pacific Northwest Mennonite Historical Society’s Annual Meeting and program, Zion Mennonite Church.

Guest speaker and Oregon native, Jessie Gingrich Hosteller from Portland Mennonite Church shares her experiences as an MCC volunteer in Vietnam (1966-68) which included being caught-up in the TET offensive, a turning point in the Vietnam War. She will also talk about her ongoing family relationship with that country. For some of us this war was lived experience, for others it is distant history. Come hear Jessie’s inspiring story of God’s love and protection and the value of service, particularly during formative years. We extend a special invitation to youth groups to join us to hear history “come alive.”  Lunch at 12 noon, cost is $25/person, free program begins at 1:30.  Lunch RSVP to Gloria Nussbaum 503.645.0616 real2reel@teleport.com
