Missions Café - March 2022: The Owen Project
Join World Missions on Thursday, March 3 at 12:00 p.m. for Missions Café: The Owen Project with Sally & Mark Keddal. During this free webinar, the Keddals will talk about the ministry they started with St. Andrew’s Church, Seguin, in memory of their son, Owen, who died at the young age of age 22. The project provides amazing, low-cost XO laptop computers, designed by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Media Lab founder Nicholas Negroponte, to students in isolated mountain schools in Honduras and Guatemala. These waterproof computers are programmed for various languages, disciplines, art, music, and a large array of selections and can connect their users to the vast resources of the internet.
