A team from Christ Church Anglican in Grand Junction will be traveling to Africa on a mission trip in May at the invitation of Bishop Mbanda of the Diocese of Shyira, Rwanda. The purpose of the trip, according to Shane Carr, pastor of the church, is relationship building between the Grand Junction congregation and their sister parish in Gasebeya as well as to see what needs Christ Church can help meet.
The team going to Rwanda includes two priests, two nurses, a teacher and an artist, Daphna Russell. The group is raising their own funds and would appreciate any funds that might be given to help. Anyone wishing to donate to the travel expenses may send tax exempt contributions to Christ Church Anglican, 2461 1⁄2 Brookwillow Loop, Grand Junction CO 81505 or phone 208-4909 for more information about the trip or the church. Daphna Russell will acknowledge any donations with a signed card bearing one of her designs or, with a $100 donation, by giving the donor an original angel sculpture.
Christ Church Anglican is located at 30th and D roads in Grand Junction.blog comments powered by Disqus
