(So far we have 6 people signed up!) Another way to contribute to this very important mission project is to give financially. Our goal is $1100, and so far we have a little over $700. So think about helping this goal be reached. We also ask for your prayers that this mission event be successful, for the organizers to be energized, and for the thousands of people who will be fed. God Bless.
