A request from Rev. Dr. L. Charles Jackson (formerly of Covenant OPC, Vandalia): Hello from Mbale, Uganda. I have spoken to a few folks here and there in the POH, but I wanted to put out the word more broadly and officially to the POH that we (Jacksons) will be needing a vehicle next year August 2019-Feb 2020 for our furlough. We will be staying in Dayton, Ohio. If anyone or any diaconate in the presbytery can help us find a reliable, decent car to use while on furlough we would appreciate it so much. It looks like we have a place to stay that is furnished so finding a car is the next important item. We’ll only be home 6-7 months and we plan to use a car to travel around Ohio, western PA as well as other states while visiting churches so it will need to be reliable. Thanks and God bless.
