Manistee Democrats to meet next week

MANISTEE — Tim and Wanda Joseph traveled to Nigeria in January to participate in a work camp organized by the Global Missions and Services office of the Church of the Brethren and the Nigerian sister denomination, Ekklesiyar ‘Yan’uwa a Nigeria (EYN).

The couple will present a report of their experience at 7 p.m. on Feb. 15 during a meeting of the Manistee County Democrats at the Manistee County Transportation building, located at 180 Memorial Drive in Manistee.

They will share some reflections on life in a country where politicians are more interested in padding their pocketbooks than addressing the deep problems of their nation. The Josephs came away with many questions about the consequences for a nation when the rule of law is disregarded and when there is not the political will to ensure the safety and well being of the citizenry. They also came home with a deep appreciation for the beauty, resiliency, deep faith and courage of the Nigerian people.
