Who is Rev. B. J. Mpofu and why is he coming here?  Good questions, and the answers require some history.  In 2008, I was new here and so was The Well.  We needed some mission project that would help people new to us know better our church’s way of being in mission.  Dr. Johnny Wray was the long—time Director…
