MISSION CAPSULES: Our gifts to Presbyterians Sharing ... support Linda Inglis as she helps the Blantyre Synod welcome visitors from around the world. Working with the Synod's General Secretary and various committees, Linda helps plan programs that engage people in the Synod's mission work. Linda sees how mission visits "help people to witness the wonderful faith and joy of Christians in Malawi and awaken them to the realities faced by everyday people in one of the world's poorest countries." Let us pray for Linda and the Blantyre Synod as they engage people in Christ's mission.
