Our day began at Crossroads Fellowship Church. Our missionary, Jim Horne, is the senior pastor and Gideon Banda, who spent 6 months at Fox River last year, is the executive pastor. Jason and Maddie joined the worship team and we enjoyed the service worshiping with these believers.
After a quick bite of lunch we drove to Bomani for the community outreach event. The weather was beautiful and the crowd was large. Like yesterday, we had camel rides, face painting, balloon animals, acrobats, plus all the fun things the Fox River team did with the kids.
Pastor Mark had the privilege of baptizing some of the New Life students to begin the afternoon. Our team fielded a volleyball team to play in a tournament. O'Neal organized some great fun and musical talent for the main stage entertainment. Our local pastor gave the gospel and many received Christ as their personal savior!
After the events were concluded, each family left with a bag of food.
Thank you, Fox River, for loving these communities well by investing in their future through educating their children and introducing them to eternal life through Jesus.
