Dear friends,

Amidst the challenges of 2020, we want to look forward to 2021 with hope and wisdom. This retreat will create thoughtful sessions where the Holy Spirit can inspire us, even through virtual connections. Our goal is to galvanize the Continuing Education aspects of the work, create parameters for success, enhance the collaboration with our Congolese counterparts, and build stronger relationships within one another through an easily accessed online event. This retreat is for both experienced PCP Medical Ambassadors and those new to the program wanting to learn. 

We hope you can join us!

  • Connecting personally in our common interest to serve the work in Congo
  • Enhance the interrelationships with our Congolese partners who will join us for a special session
  • Exploring new ways to create, support and encourage our Congolese counterparts through teaching and training and communication.
  • Reflect on/discuss parameters that help measure and track our work as an organization and as Resource Groups.
  • Establish basic aspects of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the CEUM Medical Department and PCP Medical Ambassadors
