Fraser Valley Group - September 2017 | Hungry For Life

September 2017: ,

This savvy group of veterans were at it again; in September, the team of 12 headed back to Nikopol to continue in their long-term partnership with the community there. This year, the group helped to distribute over 1,200 food and hygiene hampers, co-hosted a banquet for disabled children, and held several community gatherings.

Team Testimonials:

"This trip has shown me how things that have happened in my life helps me to make a connection in with someone—to understand where each of us has been and how God takes care of us."
"My heart has changed—softer and more forgiving towards those who do not understand God."
"One highlight was visiting with friends I made on the last trip."
"Seeing a single, older lady living in a shack with no water and no outhouse broke my heart. How can we help?"
