Today, we had a time where all who were at the service and going on the trip were on the stage. Pastor Mark Stiglicz explained to the congregation of the information about the Africa trip. Jon and Julie Sybrant have been on a total of four trips to Africa, and Mark had also been on one of the trips with Jon and Julie. Pastor Doug Patterson (on left) came up after Mark's explanation and joined us in prayer. It was a very encouraging time, and it helped to communicate to the church about the trip going on, and we had many many conversations with people before we left, all wishing us the best.
