The International Partnership Ministry Team of Pittsburgh Presbytery exists in order to help strengthen and encourage the church for faithful and fruitful discipleship in Pittsburgh Presbytery, the Synod of Blantyre, the South Sudan Presbyterian Evangelical Church and beyond.  Here is a link to more information on this ministry and mission of Pittsburgh Presbytery’s International Partnerships  https://pghpip.org/

Recently from October 11 through October 23 there were 16 Malawians https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malawi and 4 South Sudanese https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_Sudan  who visited Pittsburgh area congregations to share in Christian Fellowship in a variety of ways in a number of different locations.

On the final morning (October 23) 3 members of the partnership (2 from Malawi and 1 from Pittsburgh) were invited to share about the partnership between congregations on WESA-FM 90.5 (Pittsburgh’s NPR Radio station).  The show is “The Confluence” (local daily radio program, Monday thru Friday at 9 a.m.) and the part of the program segment featuring partnership friends starts about the 23:45 mark in the audio file.  Click on the link below the picture for the article and the audio file to listen too.

Illah Nourbakhsh Wants To Empower Citizens And Scientists To ‘CREATE’ Socially Conscious Tech

Carnegie Mellon University professor Illah Nourbakhsh caught the robot bug at an early age, and as the director of CMU’s CREATE Lab, he’s influencing a technologically fluent generation to harness their energy for socially meaningful innovation. He shares his journey and what he’s hoping for the years ahead.

We are thankful for those African friends who traveled to the U.S. and Pittsburgh that gave us faith and hope in how we live together as Christians separated by thousands of miles, brought closer to together through God’s love for all people.

We thank our friends at WESA 90.5 FM for their allowing the wider community to hear and learn about International Partnership between Malawi, South Sudan, and U.S. in Christian love for each other.  http://www.wesa.fm/#stream/0
