Many readers of the Church Visits blog have doubtless read the long-running bestseller, Three Cups of Tea: One Man’s Mission to Promote Peace, One School At A Time, by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin. The author’s mother, Jerene Mortenson, will be at St. John United Methodist Church from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Saturday, February 6 to share information about Pennies for Peace , a program of Greg’s Central Asia Institute. A penny in the United States is virtually worthless, but overseas a penny buys a pencil and opens the door to literacy.
Come share refreshments, meet Jerene Mortenson, and learn first-hand how this life changing program is making a difference to education and literacy in this far-flung area of the world. A flier containing further information about this wonderful program is attached at the bottom of this post.
