The Rev. Martin Odi, Youth and Child Visionary Ministries (YCVM) Consultant from Uganda, will share his experiences of the grassroots mission work in Kumi, Uganda at a dinner gathering hosted by the Chinese Community United Methodist Church in Oakland, Saturday, February 2 at 5 p.m. The church is located at 321-8th Street, Oakland, CA, 94607.
Six years ago, the church funded the purchase of land and a partnership was born with the Youth and Child Visionary Ministries of Uganda. From this totally grassroots project, the congregation has witnessed the power of faith working a miracle – brick by brick.
"While the church has been involved with YCVM for the past seven years and led a Volunteer in Mission (VIM) trip there in 2009, this is the first time that they have been able to bring a mission representative to the United States," writes Becky Wong.
Everyone is invited to come, hear stories of how the project was conceived and developed, and to be a part of the campaign to open Kumi Christian Visionary School (KCVS) in 2014.
Tickets for the dinner and program are $10 per person.
Reserve your spot now, contact Becky Wong at 510.545.YCVM (9286) or firstname.lastname@example.org. Reservation deadline is January 26.
