Help Lee Babirad go to Sierra Leone in Africa to produce/film a documentary about the country’s needs and the positive impact that Global Outreach, a ministry, has had there. When you contribute to her “GoFundMe” campaign online, here, you then get a voucher for yourself or someone else (give as a gift) for photography! Family sessions, graduation pics, weddings, or pet sessions– you name it, she’ll shoot it (within reason of course)…
So Buffalo and Rochester– quantities are limited, so help out today.
Global Outreach is an internationally recognized mission organization that serves throughout the globe, operating feeding programs and establishing clinics and orphanages, along with building schools/churches and drilling 100+ wells to deliver safe drinking water to poverty-filled areas.
A Buffalo-based overseas missionary friend-of-mine has been serving faithfully in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Her name is Jennifer Bliss, and some of you may know her from Love Joy Gospel Church in Lancaster, NY.
She recently wrote about her experiences there:
“I went with four of our young people at the end of September to a youth conference in Sarajevo. The theme was Mission Impossible, and the speaker spoke a lot about the Christian life, and how it is mission impossible without God, but with God all things are possible. A month later a Balkan-wide youth event took place called Srcokret. This is a play on words from the Bosnian word suncokret for sunflower which literally means turning to the sun, srcokret means turning of the heart. Four young people from our church attended.
In January, there will be another youth conference in Mostar. Please pray for the planning of this conference that it won’t just be another youth conference, but something that will build on what they have already received and help them grow closer to God and reach out to their nation.”
Bliss also wrote that the Evangelical Church of Mostar has been teaching people of all ages and backgrounds how to speak English. Bliss is one of the English teachers and says it allows her to build relationships with students and invite them to other activities at the church.
