Iowa Yearly Meeting is a group of programmed meetings in Iowa and Wisconsin. Iowa YM's worship has an evangelical bent to it (in the choices of music, for example), and I am reminded of the great range of diversity within FUM. This was underscored by their keynote speaker, Ron Stansell, who is from Evangelical Friends Mission. Candi Young, who teaches at Belize Friends (Boys) School, spoke about her work there. John Moru was visiting Iowa YM from the Turkana Friends Mission. Two Iowa YM members(Nathan and Brianna Martin), home from being missionaries in Cambodia to have a baby, also spoke.

Just some thoughts on my mind this morning! It was lovely to visit with Friends in Iowa YM and I enjoyed worshipping with them very much.
