    Greetings to the great women organizer for this DIAKONIA General Assembly 2023. My Mom who is a member of Diakonia Philippines express to me that they (my parents) Diaconal Minister Herminia Salen and Rev. Sammuel Salen would like to be part of this gathering. I am bridging the technical gap between them to contact and ask details on how to participate in the event.

    What are the needs to participate and do you offer some forms of scholarships for minister participants?

    Hope we can hear from you soon!

    Hi, I am trying to get information for my Godmother Morag Crawford (retired deaconess – Church of Scotland). She would like to know the contact address for donations to your organisation, not sure if you would have a specific charity number (like we have in UK).
    Many thanks
    David Easton
