    In Their Shoes: Women Walking with Women Worldwide Blog
    Welcome to the new blog–a sister, of sorts, to our podcast series, “In Their Shoes: Women Walking with Women Worldwide.” We got thinking about the fact that we often have books we’ve read, documentaries we’ve watched, or just things in the news that we’re keeping an eye on, that don’t always make it into a podcast episode. How could we share those things with people who have the same concerns we do? Why, a blog, of course!

    2007 American Baptist leaders to South Africa Blog

They visited missionaries supported by your donations to International Ministries and its mission partners in South Africa, Zambia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
    The blog provided on-the-spot reflections, experiences and images as the group visits with International Ministries (IM) missionaries serving as Christ's hands and feet to some of the poorest parts of the world. The group will meet as well with their national counterparts, congregations and government leaders to see first-hand the faces of our neighbors, of our brothers and sisters in Christ, who live in economic jeopardy.
