On Wednesday evening, October 30, Bro. Brad and Sis. Debbie Braker from our Morton congregation will be giving a presentation on the Apostolic Christian involvement  of our mission in India. This will include a live audio/visual segment with the  RGMMI pastor in India and his wife.  We will be able to interact with them live and visit about their culture and Christian walk with the Lord.  Debbie will share with us her experience with helping teenage girls learn to bake as well as  instructing them with other pieces of practical wisdom.  We will be enjoying  a “taste of India” afterward. It will be held at the Fellowship Hall starting at 7:30 and be in place of our Wednesday evening service.
