Sept. 28:  How South Africans Are Helping Minnesota Veterans

Why is it that vets from the wars of Vietnam, Afghan, Iraq, etc., are suffering so much from PTSD and are suiciding at a significantly higher rate than WW2 veterans? How is it that decades after our having missionized South Africa, South Africans are now coming here to help us better understand forgiveness and healing?

Amy Blumenshine and Al Bostelmann will address these issues, share some video, and describe how South Africans bring a way of dealing with memories that effectively helps Minnesota veterans take a first step toward healing.

As most of you know, Amy and Al have long dedicated a significant portion of their recent time and energy into helping find ways to serve todays vets suffering from PTSD and related illnesses. It will be good for you to come and help support them in their work by listening to the important understandings that they will share with us all. Please join us on Wednesday.
