Many lives will be touched as a result of another amazing fundraising effort by Ballymoney Church of God.
In its seventh year, the “Choose a Gift – Change a Life” alternative gift scheme, an integral part of missionary outreach, once again attracted support from far and wide. Despite challenging economic circumstances people gave with such compassion raising the wonderful total of £4,000.
The Church has a long association with Kenya and is involved in demonstrating God’s love in a very practical way through a diverse range of projects.
To ensure that 100% of the aid reaches those most in need the Church works closely with ‘Reach the Unreached Ministries’ and Richard Gunning was presented with a cheque on Sunday evening. Martin Goodchild and Peter Karangu of RTU Ministries oversee the distribution of the aid in Kenya and will forward some photographs and video footage in due course.
Pastor Jonathan Payne commented “Church members, their neighbours, families, friends and work colleagues were extremely generous in their giving and will touch and change many lives through their kindness. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this very worthy cause and made this year’s appeal such a success.” He also thanked Hilary Kyle for coordinating the whole Christmas project.
