Laurel Benn – PWMU Convenor PWMU represents our
Presbyterian missionaries reporting on their area of ministery to our PWA groups.
Welcome to PWMU and we invite you to come along to our meetings. This will give you a chance to hear what is happening with our Missionaries both in Australia and overseas. Many of our Missionaries leave behind so much in their lives in Australia to go and serve our Lord. Please continue to pray for them as they spread the Word of God throughout the lands.
