Mennonite Church Canada International Witness

is pleased to announce Werner and Joanne De Jong, from Edmonton, Alberta, as new Witness workers in Ethiopia, working as relief faculty for Meserete Kristos College. 

MKC has provided college level courses for more than two decades, producing many ministers, church leaders and development and peace workers in Ethiopia and other African countries. To aid MKC’s transition to a seminary, MKC has asked Mennonite Church Canada to provide temporary teachers while their faculty members spend time in graduate studies.
