Our LaJoya Team Our team of 10 (8 of which are from St. John's) had a wonderful and meaningful trip while they served in La Joya, Nicaragua, October 2-10, 2015. Thank you for your support and prayers for Pastor and Dawn Sarrault, Alysia Masters, Jamie Anderson, John Scobie, Candi Sandera, Nancy Griewahn, and Sandy and Lisa Barancin. This team installed water filtration systems and sky lights in homes, and taught health and hygiene classes. Of course, they also built relationships and pointed people to Jesus through all they did. They kept a blog of their progress and shared their stories! Click here to check it out! The new team for the 2016 trip to be taken July 29th - August 6th, is: Pastor and Dawn Sarrault, Alysia Masters, Jamie Anderson, Candi Sandera, John Scobie, Barb Smith, Mary Wells, and Tom Mitchell. Please keep them in your prayers as they prepare for this year's adventure.
This is the major fundraiser for the LaJoya trip. The 2016 and 2017 Rock 'N Bowl, held at Lenawee Recreation, were huge successes and lots of fun! Thank you to our many sponsors, listed below, who financially supported this event and this important mission. We also truly appreciate everyone who came and participated in this fun afternoon!
“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.”
The following business generously sponsored a lane (or two) for our Rock 'N Bowl to help us raise the needed funds for this annual LaJoya mission trip.
