Embrace; Converse! Christel Wiebe Sister #1

A new set of sister, brothers, conversation partners now live in my heart, mind, soul, strength. This is the gift of Mennonite World Conference and of Florence congregation to me. The last three weeks have been a long string of pearls, each one a conversation across language, culture, communities of faith in context. I share here just a few images of conversation partners along the Way:

Christel Wiebe was my hostess during my stay in Menno Colony of the Paraguayan Chaco. This colony was begun by Mennonites leaving Canada in the 1920's in order to find a place to live their faith, speak and school children in German, and find exemption from military service. Christel and her fiance, Marwin, shared home, food, stories. In our on-going conversations at MWC Christel and I explored the dynamics of the German, Latin and Indigenous peoples in the Chaco and other faith issues. I am glad to have such a sister!
