Monthly Capital Campaign – The September capital campaign is for Anthony & Sara Sytsma. The Sytsma’s are missionaries in Soroti, Uganda through World Renew, where they are working as Global Associates, alongside the Pentecostal Assemblies of God (PAG). This means that they are working with pastors and development organizations from PAG in the region around Soroti. Specifically, Anthony trains and disciples’ pastors, and Sara work with farmers to be good stewards of their land and improve their yields. Read more about them and their journey at http://worldrenew.net/sytsma. The offering will take place Sunday, September 26th.
