Former Vice President Mike Pence will visit Billings in May as a keynote speaker for a local Christian non-profit banquet. Provision International will host Pence on May 13 during its Mission’s Banquet at MetraPark, according to an announcement posted on social media. He's obviously a political figure, but when we’re coming together that evening, it's to help people that cant help themselves, people who don’t have options," said Provision International President Lance Lanning. Operating for over two decades, Provision International was founded with the aim of gathering and shipping medical equipment to impoverished communities in Europe, Africa and Central and South America. Within a few years, the scope of the supplies that it sends expanded to include food, clothes and especially shoes.
