Jill Bliss, Andrea Wall, Mungwe ABC Athman and Pastor David Bliss in Bowling Green, Ohio Part of the visit to the US included a trip to Ohio to visit partners there. Pastor David Bliss, wife Jill and daughter Rachel were our hosts for our stay in Bowling Green. Pastor Bliss has been a long time friend of PEN’s and comes to visit at least once a year.
