The Peace and Justice Network uses its grant funding for multiple activities, including hosting an International Peacemaker each year. Last year, we were honored to host Mary Mikhael from Syria. Mary spoke at multiple events throughout her visit and approximately 517 participants heard her message in various forums.
This year we will host Thang Van Lian from Myanmar in late September. He will speak about the Rohingya crisis, the current civil war on ethnic minority groups, the silence of the Myanmar churches and what a faithful response of Christians and the Christian church might look like to a humanitarian crisis such as the one being faced in Myanmar today.
