Rev. Angela Bulhof leads the group in closing worship

South Central DR/VIM Coordinator Audrey Phelps spoke to a crowd of nearly 60 Louisiana Volunteers in Mission team leaders during their annual training held Jan. 23-24 at The Wesley Center in Woodworth.

Phelps incorporated many elements of the new A Mission Journey handbook while examining the “call to mission.”

The training, which focused on the “why, where and who” of short-term missions, was organized by Rev. Ann Sutton and led by members of the LAVIM Leadership Team.
