Mission Trip to Kayoro

We have several parishioners planning to travel with Give Us Wings in January to visit the people of Kayoro and build our relationship with them. While working with the people of Kayoro, we will be training on equipment designed to make the processing of grain more efficient and productive, teaching at the clinic, and listening and learning so that we can help ensure better health, education, and living standards in Kayoro, Uganda.
Two of our parishioners need assistance with their travel expenses. Please consider adding a contribution to the Kayoro Restricted Fund to be used to assist these travelers. This can be done with a check made out to St. John’s with Kayoro Restricted Fund noted on the memo line. If you would like to make donations over the year or a period of months please contact the Reverend Jered Weber-Johnson, 651- 228-1172 x11. Contact Jennifer Kinkead at 612-750-2541 for more info.
