Countdown to DIAKONIA World Assembly - introducing New Zealand delegates

In 2009, Shirley-Joy Barrow, a Deacon from the Methodist Church in New Zealand, attended the DIAKONIA World Assembly in Atlanta. In 2013 (Berlin), there were no attendees from New Zealand. It is wonderful that in 2017 in Chicago there will be three people from New Zealand, representing the Anglican and Methodist Churches (the association is known as DANZA). It will be the first time they participate in a DIAKONIA World Assembly, so if you see them at Assembly, please say hi!!
They are (below, from left)
