Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.
—I Corinthians 12:4-11
[Noah Merrill has just] returned from two weeks visiting Friends in Bolivia as part of a training for traveling Quaker ministers from Cuba, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico, and Bolivia. The ten Friends who participated now form the Spanish-speaking body of the Traveling Ministry Corps, a new program of the Friends World Committee for Consultation, the global association of Quakers of which our Yearly Meeting is a member.
