The International Wholistic Missions Conference will commence for a third time April 29th through May 1st in Peoria, AZ with the goal of equipping Christians, churches and organization for word and deed ministries that transform lives and communities.  This year’s theme is “The Whole Church on Mission” with tracks for On Mission to the Poor, the City, the Workplace and more.  As part of the track for On Mission to a Broken World, Leadership Council member Elli Oswald will represent Faith to Action. Elli will facilitate a workshop on Orphans and Vulnerable Children: How Churches Can Support Family and Community Based Care, discussing the limitations of institutional care, alternatives for family-based care, and practical resources for orphan care ministry. The International Wholistic Missions Conference is also supported by partner Food for the Hungry, with leadership from Faith to Action’s Leadership Council member Wendy McMahan.
