Richmond Men Set to Minister in CAR

Feb 13, 2007

Six men from the Community of Grace Church in Richmond, VA, (David Kennedy, pastor) leave for a two-week trip to Bangui, Central African Republic, on February 15th to work on the completion of the orphanage care center there.

Bags are packed, spirits are high, and support is strong as the church commissioned the men this past Sunday. Church family and team members’ families raised over $21,000 to send the largest mission team ever from the Richmond church.

This team follows the path of one of its church’s college students who led the way to Africa for the congregation last summer in working with CAR’s orphans.

“Mission is becoming a way of life as God changes our hearts toward others,” remarked Dave Kennedy, Lead Pastor, and one of the CAR Team members. (photo courtesy Dave Kennedy)
