Itineration Schedules

Speaking Schedule for Rev. Douglas Williams

Rev. Douglas Williams, an Iowan, serves as a United Methodist missionary in Mendoza, Argentina. Doug is returning to Iowa on home leave for itineration purposes and visits with his family August 20 for one month.

He works with the Evangelical Methodist Church of Argentina having been commissioned as a missionary in Oct. 2015. He serves as a pastor, chaplain at the Alberto Schweitzer School and hosts Volunteer in Mission teams working in Argentina. For 21 years Doug has served in the UMC with Coralville as his last assignment prior to going to Argentina for mission service.

Rev. Douglas Williams Biographical Information. Go to: Click on Missionaries. Select Williams' name on list. Click on it for picture, additional biographical information.

Doug will have his own housing (a motor home) but only needs a plug in for electricity. He will have a power point so if you have projector/screen that would be helpful.

This is Doug's first home leave so he plans to visit all his 20+ supporting churches and is excited to tell his mission story to your church. Nowadays it is difficult to get a large group together but sharing with a small group will offer a meaningful and personal experience. Please see attached speaking schedule and confirm with me the day/time of the event to be held in your church.

As one of his supporting church that he plans to visit we ask that you take an offering, not to be given to Williams, but to help defray his transportation costs. Monies may be sent to the IAC, designated: #399 Mission Itineration/Williams. Unneeded funds will be sent for his missionary support.

Thank you for your willingness to host Doug Williams at your church. I'm sure your time together will be informational and inspirational.
