Mission Trip 2016

Wonderful time with students and staff of Church Hill Academy. Frank and Lupi shared their stories with the students, had lunch with them and them led the chapel worship service. 

Frank speaks to Powhatan High School group.

In 2016 we had our second "reverse" mission trip with Pastors Lupi Mwaipalo and Frank Mganga coming to Powhatan for three weeks in late fall. This was Lupi's first trip and Frank's return trip from 2014. They kept a busy schedule throughout the Richmond area speaking to organizations, participating in meetings, visiting various schools, assisting with other mission group activities, and participating in church services. Their personal stories and testimonies, as well as their singing, were captivating and inspiring.
