Blessing of Brianna, Madeline, Rebecca, and Sarah
Our congregation has the opportunity to offer a blessing to four young people about to embark upon a mission trip to Swaziland in Africa where they will aid in building schools for children and work in animal conservation. Upon their return, we plan to invite them back to report on their activities. The Missions Committee was happy to make a monetary contribution toward their trip.

We ask God's blessing for their safe and fruitful trip.
