We are praising the Lord for the safe return of our 11 member (representing 4 CRBA Churches) Kenya Mission Team. They built four houses, taught children, (got stuck on/in several Kenyan “roads”), participated in worship services, shared their faith boldly and saw 266 people publicly profess Christ as their Savior and Lord. To God be the Glory, Great things He has done!!! Has God called you to go with us to Kenya on our next trip? Stay tuned for more information in the days ahead as we share plans for our next mission trip to minister in Kenya. On our next trip we will do all of the things listed above (hopefully with the exclusion of getting stuck on Kenyan roads) but we will also do training for pastors in local villages.

Medical Patient Modesty is doing a Pie Bake-Off / Silent Auction (http://tasteoflocalfood.com/pie-bakeoff/) in Morganton on Saturday, March 7th from 12-3:30 PM at Social Hall in the basement of Collett Street Recreation Center to benefit Medical Patient Modesty (http://www.patientmodesty.org)  and we will need a number of volunteers (some must be teenagers under the age of 18). 

Medical Patient Modesty is a non-profit organization that works to help educate patients and their families about how to have maximum modesty for procedures; how to stand up for their rights requesting a same-gender medical team for intimate procedures; and how to prevent sexual abuse by medical professionals. We also work to educate medical professionals on how to be more sensitive to patient modesty.

The proceeds from this event will help with our patient education / advocacy efforts.

We are looking for people from different churches in Burke County who enjoy baking to participate in our pie baking contest.   An entry for one pie is $10. You can find more information on the pie baking contest at http://tasteoflocalfood.com/pie-bakeoff/bakerregistration.asp.
