Through our Mission Council, we help to support Doug’s ministry in Northern Ireland.  He recently sent us this note:

Dear Friends,

A Mission Connections letter sharing about the 20th Anniversary Celebration of the YAV Program in Northern Ireland has been posted at:

It includes brief reflections from 20 past volunteers, which I believe are worth reading to get a sense ofthe impact of this program, not only for those who have served in Northern Ireland but anywhere. There were many others I received and would love to have included but space restrictions limited me.

It also includes the names of the five new volunteers who began their service at the end of August. I encourage you to keep them in your prayers and follow their experiences at:

Grace and Peace,


Rev Doug Baker, PCUSA Regional Liaison for Ireland and the United Kingdom / YAV Site Coordinator
