Update

Jesus said that if we drink from the well of His life we will never thirst again.  But the sad truth is many children in Africa are so physically thirsty for clean water that some are dying.  Some will die today. But praise God that He is allowing our church to make a real difference!  Thanks to the initiative of Hunter Frey we are now planning to send our first team to the CAR in July.  We need your help to make this venture successful.  Here are some things you can do to make a difference:  Pray.  Sounds like a no-brainer but sometimes we forget that it makes a tangible and substantial difference.  Let’s be deliberate! Support.  If you feel led to do so, you can provide financial support to one of the people going to Africa or the team as a whole.  You can also buy flowers (to go with your mulch) as a means of supporting the team. Learn.  Learning is growth.  Come to “Seeking God’s Heart” 9am-Noon on Sat April 12 at the church and you can hear more about the clean water initiative in Africa from an ICDI representative, meet Hunter Frey and learn more about the orphans and their needs, as well as meet our missionary Tom Barlow.  Let me know if you have any questions about any of these!   Reminder:  Since this is Spring Break week there will be no Wednesday night meetings.  But please join us Weds Apr 9 from 6:30-8pm in the Nursery for a focused time of prayer!

  1. I’m really excited about going on this trip!! Sometimes, it seems like we are able to do so little to relieve the suffering in the world, but the Lord multiplies our efforts.

  2. Debating says : I absolutely agree with this !
