The Vice-President of the Methodist Church, Barbara Easton, was visiting Malta from the 28th of April to the 2nd af May 2022 . 
After a tour around the UK Barbara arrived on the island with a busy schedule. One of the first tasks was a visit to the International Centre on Thursday, meeting with Malta Microfinance and Blue Door English, both project of Saint Andrew's.
Christians together in Malta welcomed the Vice-President when they met at Saint Andrew's on that evening.
Friday a meeting with the British High Commissioner was scheduled in the morning.  
In afternoon  Barbara and her husband Martin finally had some time to explore the island before the schedule continued with a meeting of the Kirk Session on Saturday.
After Sunday Service there was a little time to meet the congregation over some refreshments. On a tour of the upper rooms of the premises, Barbara had a few words with Dr. Klaus Peter Edinger, Pastor of the German Andreas Gemeinde and members of the congregation before taking in the breathtaking view from the roof of the church.
A Sunday lunch with the Kirk Session was the ending point of Barbara's official visit in Malta. 
We hope the trip was enjoyable for Barbara and Martin and we hope it will not be too long before their next visit to Malta.
