MEDIA ADVISORY, July 12 /Christian Newswire/ -- Pastors, church missions leaders and heads of Christian organizations in East Tennessee and the Houston, Texas area are urged to attend two complementary luncheons next month, focusing on the continuing humanitarian crisis in Africa’s Western Sahara region.
The programs are part of a continuing effort to educate American Christian leaders about the abduction to Cuba of thousands of children by communist inspired guerillas and the diverting of millions of dollars in Christian aid to the black market.
Sponsored by the Christian Friendship Mission and the National Clergy Council, a network of conservative church leaders, the no-cost events include a deluxe meal, a short video presentation and personal testimonies by members of a visiting delegation from Western Sahara.
The luncheons are not fundraisers and no appeal will be made during or at any time after the events. Attendees will be told of non-financial ways to help resolve the tragic suffering of so many innocent children and families.
“This is a great opportunity to witness Christ-like love in a strategic part of the world,” said Rev. Rob Schenck, who is leading an historic dialogue between American Evangelicals and Moroccan Muslims. “Christians are being asked to help. We dare not miss this opportunity.”
The meal and program are free, but reservations are recommended. Please E-mail name, address, telephone and number in party (up to six) to firstname.lastname@example.org or call Allyson Black or Dane Rose at 202-546-8329, extension 104. Media representatives are welcome.
