The Wine Tasting held on Saturday June 9 was a marvelous celebration/fundraiser/fellowship and educational event!
Art McLaughlin taught us about wine, we shared the Good News of Rwanda School Project, welcomed visitors, and made new friends. Bettyann Biber supervised the food bites paired with each wine. Such fun!
We raising over $1000.00 for gifts that the our mission team (Peg and Wayne Nielsen, Karen Shelton and Cathy Whitlow) will take to our Rwandan friends and students.
If you could not come to the event, you may still contribute towards financial gifts for our former students now attending university and our dear friend Pastor Edward Makara. We also would like to purchase books, sports equipment and other supplies for students at the Rwamagana Lutheran School. Mark your donations Rwanda Ministries and place in the Sunday offering.
The mission team will be at late church on July 1 for the “sending”. Join us then for service, and after for some Rwandan tea and fruit.
