Learn about the conflict in Syria from MCC alumni

Storytelling Opportunity

Ryan and Holly Snyder Thompson have served internationally with Mennonite Central Committee in Jordan, Lebanon and Syria working in a variety of programmatic, church and educational settings. Due to the escalating violence, the Snyder Thompsons have recently returned from Damascus, Syria and are currently volunteering as regional storytellers for West Coast MCC. Ryan and Holly are prepared to discuss biblical/Anabaptist motivations for peace, justice and reconciliation and how these issues impact the current situation in Syria, as well as MCC’s humanitarian and disaster response in Syria and Lebanon. Ryan and Holly live in Davis, Calif.

If you are interested in having Holly and Ryan come speak with your group, please contact West Coast MCC at or call 559-301-3403.
