Just two weeks from today, after months of planning and fund raising, eleven members of our East Central community will board a plane for Kivuruga, Rwanda. They will go to observe the results of our financial partnership with World Vision. Team members will meet their sponsored children, build relationships with the World Vision staff and the people of Kivuruga, and observe the challenges of daily life first hand. Look closely at these faces…just as Our Response desires to bring transformation to Kivuruga, the lives of those pictured here will be transformed as well, never to be the same!
Front row, from left to right: Kelli McDonald, Shelby Swanson, Michelle Lundeen, Shannon Kirkeide, Amy Evenson, and Brad Wold. In the back, left to right: Steve Fredlund, Clint Lundeen, Kent Viesselman, Shawn Kirkeide. Shelby and Amy are high school students, the first youth to travel with an Our Response team.
Shaun Johnson, lead singer of Tonic Sol-Fa, will also be traveling as part of the team. That’s Shaun, sitting to the far right.
You can hear Shaun and the rest of the TSF quartet (think high-energy acapella!), along with The Mystery Mountain Boys, on July 20th, at the Our Response Summer Shindig! Don’t miss this opportunity to support the trip team, hear from some great musicians and vocalists, and enjoy a host of fun activities and events. Beginning at 1:00, it’ll be the happening thing in Cambridge. We hope to see you at the Anoka-Ramsey Community College this Saturday.
