Pastro David Woods Tells of Kenya

David Woods, Senior Pastor of Park Chapel Christian Church spoke to Kiwanis about his recent trip to Kenya and the missions that members of Park Chapel support. Pastor Woods presented a narrative with pictures of the trip to Kenya. The trip allowed members of the church to visit children they sponsor and to see a church that was recently built. The mission had three components, a school, a feeding station, and a church. Each sponsored child receives clothing, 2 meals a day and an education. Without sponsorships children can not attend school and many go hungry, Many of the sponsored children only eat when at school.
A child can be sponsored for $30 a month which pays for all their food, clothing and their education. Anyone desiring more information can contact Park Chapel church at 317.462.4513 or send contributions to Park Chapel Christian Church, 1176 E. McKenzie Rd.
Greenfield, IN 46140.
