Eleven candidates for the Individual Volunteers program came to NewYork City from across the US to participate in the Orientation/Training held November 2-4, 2007. They will serve in locations from Chile to Haiti and Zambia. They heard great stories and gleaned valuable information from Jarod Osborne, an Individual Volunteer who just returned from serving in Uganda. They also heard from Elliot Wright, GBGM Information Officer, who gave them pointers on how to tell their story and solicited their stories while they serve. Sunday morning, the group worshiped at Church of the Village UMC in Greenwich Village.
