It was a pleasure to have Rocio B’arcenas Jauregui and William Lianos Zuniga (Missionaries from Argentina) to visit Holy Grounds Monday morning, March 2, 2015 at Oak Park United Methodist Church. Pictured from left to right: Linda Grounds-wife of Oak Park Pastor, Don Jones and Linda is also pastor at Delaware UMC, Karen Distefano-member at Oak Park UMC and also Conference Secretary of Global Ministries. We were inspired by their journey to becoming Methodist clergy in the Colombian Methodist Church, and how they live out their calling with the people of Argentina and Uruguay. We were fortunate that Karen was able to have them speak at Holy Grounds. Holy Grounds meets every Monday morning at 8:00 AM for coffee and muffins and other foods. Everyone is welcome to come and share in breakfast and fellowship.
