Welcome David & Kaswera Kasali

 

Kasali Visit Aug 2014-01

Congo Initiative President David Kasali and his wife, Kaswera, are coming to Durham and Blacknall August 28 – September 1. There will be a number of opportunities to spend time with them and we hope you will avail yourselves of one of the opportunities. We continue to pray expectantly that the Lord has invited us into this friendship for his kingdom purposes and look forward to connecting them to our church family.

If you cannot make one of these gatherings, but want a chance to get together with David or Kassie, please contact Betsy Poole.
