We want to increase awareness of the work of our Presbyterian Church both at home and overseas, and so over the following months we will be providing details here of the missionaries involved in this work. Please take time to learn about these missionaries and pray for the work they carry out.
The PCI also has an excellent website which highlights this work and is worth a visit.
