MISSION WORK THANK YOU – Mission work is a very important part of any church. The opportunity to share Christ by example is to be treasured among Christians. While some are called to preach the Word to others in foreign lands, some who are differently gifted, go to be the hands of Christ to help improve the lives of others. That will be our mission as we travel to Alaska in June and July to build homes for the Joshua Project in Fairbanks.
This year has been busy in our church with fund raising activities to support the team. The cost of transportation and room & board is significant and your willingness to help offset some of these expenses through your contributions is greatly appreciated. Thank you from the bottoms of our hearts for your support. Please continue to support us with your prayers. Thank you, Arnie Casto, Susan Johnson, Carolyn Gorrell and Debbie Parsons.
