Colombia Accompaniment Program seeking volunteers

Can you give a month to accompany our Colombian sisters and brothers in the midst of violence? Consider participating in the Colombia Accompaniment Program.

Leaders in the Presbyterian Church of Colombia are taking great risks in their human rights work and their support of the communities of Colombians who have been displaced by the violence of the forty-year war in their country. They have asked us to act as international accompaniers in order to provide a measure of safety—international eyes—for their work.

In response, the Presbyterian Peace Fellowship is working with PC(USA) World Mission and the Presbyterian Church of Colombia to train and deploy short-term mission workers to Colombia. To date we have trained over 100 volunteers, over 70 of which have served.

The next training is scheduled for March 17-21, 2011. Contact Linda Eastwood, Coordinator, Colombia Accompaniment Program, for more information.
