The McMurry Exploratory mission team left yesterday to embark on a journey to Africa and the West Bank. Over the next two weeks, the team will have strategic conversation with Africa University, a pilot United Methodist University in Zimbabwe (http://www.africau.edu/ ), Bethlehem Bible College (http://www.bethbc.org/ ) and The Holy Land Trust (http://www.holylandtrust.org/ ).
Please be in prayer for the team as they discern how McMurry University can partner with these institutions in the future. This group is going to “explore” and help shape the future of other McMurry in Motion mission trips! We hope to establish lasting relationships with our brothers and sisters around the world.
The team will be updating the blog regularly. Visit this link, http://blogs.mcm.edu/religiouslife/ to view the first post about their experience at the London Heathrow airport!
