On this week’s In Accord, please join COGWA president, Jim Franks, as he gives an update on his trip to South America. It was an 18-day trip through four countries: Chile, Uruguay, Argentina and Peru. Mr. Franks visited with 600 members over three Sabbaths, along with a webcast that included an additional 200 members. It was a very successful trip. If you ever have the opportunity to visit the congregations in South America, either while on a vacation or for the Feast, you won’t be disappointed. There are many happy brethren who are among the most hospitable you will ever meet. Even if you don’t speak Spanish, you will be treated very well, and you definitely won’t go hungry! Fellowship, good food and encouragement characterize the congregations in South America!
