After many months of planning, Family Fest finally started yesterday with more than 100 volunteers coming from all across the United States to help with ministry in the Wisconsin Dells. We are so grateful to the WMU, MWBC, Pine Valley Church of Wisconsin Dells, and River of Life Church in Portage for helping to make this event possible.
Our vision is to one day see a new church plant in the Dells area. We recognize that PIne Valley Church, and Evangelical Free Church, is a three year old church and is doing a great job with Pastor Jay Heesch. We are thankful for Jay’s partnership with us in Family Fest. I am also grateful to Pastor Bob Turner of River of Life Church who has had the vision for some time now. HIs passion for the lost and his desire to see people come to Christ is contagious.
Last night the first block party took place with scores and scores of international students in attendance. The gospel of Jesus Christ was shared with many of them. Please be in prayer for the rest of the week as the team goes out to engage in more block parties, Backyard Bible Clubs, construction, nursing home ministry, literacy missions, and much more.
