Drumglass-Fivemiletown team fund-raise for South America
The Drumglass Parish team are getting excited as the time draws nearer for departure to Argentina. We travel to Argentina on July 24th returning August 15th.
Harold Armstrong, Nigel Millar, Margaret Jackson and Kate Shrestha will join 3 other ladies from Fivemiletown to make up a team travelling to Salta to help with the Red Box Project there. We are all looking forward to meeting Cecilia again.
Over the past few months there have been many fundraising events in the Paris. There was a 6 hour Dance-a-thon resulting in tired feet for many and Nigel ran the Belfast Marathon in May in blistering conditions but still completed the run in good time. A more relaxed event of selling cakes and drinking coffee filled a Saturday morning at the beginning of June and a fun night with a Treasure Hunt and BBQ is planned for the end of June in Dungannon Park. All events to date have been really well supported by the Parish.
Two members of the Team have travelled abroad before, however not to South America and all are looking forward to this new experience. We also look forward to seeing how the Church in Salta fellowship together and trust God can use us in some way to serve there.
