The AWF ExCom appointed Dr. Bernie A. Van De Walle as the new chairman of the commission.
We would like to thank Dr. Miguel Angel Palomino, the former chairman, for his dedication and commitment to the ICTE mission. He will continue to contribute to ICTE as one of the Latin America’s representatives.
Please, continue to pray for this commission as they develop this important AWF ministry.
