We had a great week with some incredible people in Mountain Home, Arkansas. The Church in Mountain Home is a representation of numerous churches within the Mountain Home area that all partnered to host the Experience. It was such a blessing to work alongside so many different congregations in being a voice for these children. This entire community is incredibly engaged with World Vision and many families within the area have had the chance to go over to Kenya and meet their sponsored children. We had such a great time hearing these stories and looking at the pictures of the work World Vision is doing through sponsors like you all! It is such a joy to hear the first-hand stories of those that have gotten the chance to hug their sponsored children, have seen the wells built through your donations and have seen the children and families whose lives have been transformed through sponsorship.

The community is hosting a Marathon in November to raise money for Kenya. If you happen to find yourself in the Mountain Home area November 21st be a part of the incredible work this community is doing and show your support!

Thank you to Our Savior’s Lutheran for hosting the Experience this week!  We had a great week with the church and community. The week started with a family choir from Burundi who shared their story of survival through civil warfare. It was both encouraging and challenging to hear about their commitment to the Lord despite the horrific things they have seen and experienced. Throughout the week we had the chance to meet so many incredible people doing incredible work around the world. This community is very engaged with a local missions group that sends mission teams all around the world. It was great to hear their stories and see the commitment this community has to those living in poverty. albany2
