Tsawwassen Sun Festival
St. Andrew's recently took part in this wonderful summer fun event. The youth had four face-painters in action and we painted almost 100 faces at the festival. As well as face-painting we made connections with many amazing people on the fair grounds; some Christians, others not. It was a great pleasure to pray with several people for sickness, for the hurts of the past and for the future for reconciliation in Christ. We also raised a fair amount of money for our partner organization, the Bishop Ngalamu Theological College in the Southern Sudan. Thanks to everyone who guessed the number of the jelly beans; we will be in touch with the winner soon!
