About twenty 412 Commission students and leaders had a pizza lunch today in the BMH offices as part of this year’s 412 orientation. Here students enjoy lunch and chatting with BMH Senior Editor Jesse Deloe and BMH Operations Manager Ann Myers.
Terry White of BMH and Tom Avey of the FGBC addressed the students, giving background and context on the Fellowship and its operations. Following lunch the students toured the warehouse/shipping areas of BMH Books and had a tour of the Tree of Life bookstore/cafe now under renovation next door to the BMH offices.
The 412 Commission is a ministry of CE National and CEN executive director Ed Lewis accompanied the students on the orientation visit.
Here, in their own words, is how the students described the experience:
“For lunch we went to the Brethren Missionary Herald, (BMH) and had lots of healthy food, for example, pizza, chips and pop. They took us on a tour of the building and showed us where they ship and package the books they sell. We also were able to see where the new Grace Tree of Life bookstore will be. Hopefully that will be opening the beginning of October.
“At the end of our tour, we recieved a bag full of goodies which included the latest edition of the FGBC World newspaper, a couple other pamphlets, and many good books including Childlike Faith by Keith Shearer and Sweeter Than Honey by BMH’s own Jesse Deloe.”
