Come support ACP's Youth Mission to Africa
ACP is a mission church and, for the past three years, a group of students have committed time each summer to travel to Africa to serve those less fortunate. During 7-20 July, approximately fifteen team members from our congregation will be traveling to Libreville, Gabon and partnering with Envision Culture during our stay in Africa. If you would like more information about this host organization and the country of Gabon, please visit their website.
While in Libreville, our team will work with medical, children’s, and construction ministries. The two medical clinics are operated by Gabonese Christian nurses and doctors, who share the Gospel while caring for people’s basic healthcare needs. Hope House, a home for abandoned children founded by an Alliance pastor and his wife, cares for the physical, emotional, and educational needs of more than 30 children. Our team will also have the opportunity to travel approximately three hours into the jungle to a village called Ebel Abanga, were we will work alongside the locals in a construction project, teaching E.S.L., and running a daytime program for children.
In order to accomplish our goals each participant must raise 1,800 euros. This total includes the cost of travel and transportation, meals and lodging, a grant giving project, and the project costs with Envision. It is our goal to ensure that medical, physical, spiritual, and financial help is provided in partnership with local Gabonese organizations.
We will also be holding a silent auction for two paintings. One was generously donated by Frank Vescio, whose work will decorate the halls of the theatre on Africa Night. The other was donated by Myriem Monghal, a Moroccan artist. The paintings will be on display in the theater this Sunday after the 11h00 service and Deborah Naa Darkua First-Quao will be there to accept your silent bid as well as speak to you about his inspiration from life in Mali. The starting bid is 200 euros. All proceeds go the youth trip in Gabon.
