For a week in September Jersey Baptist Church hosted a team of 15 Americans from Mississippi who come from New Palestine Baptist Church. Over the course of the week the team partnered with our church to help host Children and Youth events, an adult outreach event and a beach clean up. The high-light of the week was the ‘Demo and Dine’ adult guest event which consisted of Food demonstrations, a three course meal and an opportunity to hear the life stories of three members of the team from Mississippi and from our church. The night proved to be a really fun evening and a great opportunity for to hear from people who have very real lives and a real faith in Jesus.
All in all the week with the team from Mississippi was great because it gave us a chance to learn from, and enjoy the company of Christians from another part of the world. Through the partnership, we forged new friendships and developed new opportunities to share the good news of Jesus!
