Speaker: Lynn Chotowetz
Organization: Hands at Work in Africa
Human nature is to be the hero of our story but carrying this into mission work is fruitless and damaging. True local and global mission is a call to lose our lives, and the missionary is in a backstage role. Examples from Africa and Canada show that the Cross leads both to effective development and True Life.
Lynn chairs the Hands at Work in Africa movement of African churches responding to the ongoing AIDS and orphan crisis in sub-Saharan Africa. Lynn now also leads with his wife a new initiative engaging the Saskatchewan church with families in the local child welfare system.
Concentration: Going Global - Cross Cultural Mission
