Today was our first day taking part in ministry in Big Falls! We were privileged with the opportunity to visit families throughout the village and offer our support and prayers. We will have the children out for some fun this afternoon and we will see what the evening brings. Thank you for your support and prayers!

We led Sunday School and worship this morning for our brothers and sisters in Big Falls. We will participate in worship tonight and do our best to learn a few things.

The last few days

by Mike Korth | June 16, 2010 4:22 PM

We have been busy! Monday and Tuesday morning we were invited to do ministry in our village with the 500+ students at the school. It was an exciting time for all of us as we somehow worked to teach the gospel while having fun and invested in our "small" groups as well. We had such a blast! We closed out our week with a few visits to homes around the village, a time of Bible School and a goodbye service with some members from the congregation. We will be wrapping up our week tomorrow. Please pray for safe travels. Thank you for your prayers and support.
