World Hunger Appeal 2017~ The Sunday School children would like to thank the congregation for your support at their “PROTECTION” booth during the World Hunger Appeal focus in January! The combined total of your contributions along with the Noisy Offering was $1,823.24. The Image Project can move forward in protecting the girls from danger by building a fence around the Namnyaki Girls Secondary School and providing the payment of goats to the Maasai warriors and security guards. Thank you for helping to provide a safe and nurturing environment where the girls can receive an education without the fear of being forced into marriage or sold.
Let’s make some NOISE for the Good Samaritan Fund this Sunday!!
