Another exciting Experience
Many of you recall that in September of 2012, the World Vision Experience, Step into Africa, arrived at the Isanti County Fairgrounds. Several hundred volunteers from our East Central community joyfully helped increase awareness regarding issues of extreme poverty. Approximately 200 Rwandan children were sponsored by the 4,100 visitors!
World Vision has a new 20-minute mobile exhibit which is due to arrive in our area on September 16. From September 17–20, Our Response will host the World Vision Experience truck at Cambridge First Baptist Church. Though smaller in scale than Step into Africa, the purpose is the same: to alleviate global suffering.
During the 8-hour shifts that the walk-through exhibit is open, volunteers will be needed to help with a number of details, such as handing out headsets. For now, get excited, put the date on your calendar, and more details will be forthcoming soon. If you would like to get involved at the planning level, Steve Fredlund would be more than happy to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org or 651.587.5435.
