And providing a worship experience for the Arabic-Speaking Community is no everyday occurance. Yet the Presbytery of Des Moines is honored tohave experienced all three on Sunday, Nov. 15, at the Cottage Grove Presbyterian Mission Center.

That's when Ekram Kachu, who came to the United States from Khartoum, Sudan, was ordained as an elder in the Presbyterian Church, and then commissioned as a CRE (Commissioned Ruling Elder). Congratulations to Ekram and to her family!
