Another Great 11th Annual Selian 5k
Thank you to everyone who attended the 11th Annual Selian 5k on Saturday, June 8th, and especially those who volunteered their help with set-up, clean-up, registration and more! A few people deserve special mention: Carol Mayer for coordinating set-up, Brittany Hass for her amazing t-shirt design skills, Sara Lancaster for publicity and technology assistance, Steve Howie for the sound system and music, Dick Watkins for contacting sponsors, Dick and Valerie Watkins for making sure we provided plenty of water for our participants, Walt Meyer for manning the microphone, Kate Waggoner for scheduling the timer and Jeanne Dallman for providing bananas.
This was another successful year of raising money to support all the ministries of Selian Lutheran Hospital, Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre, Plaster House, and especially the ALMC School of Nursing!
Saint Peter Youth Head to Mexico!
From June 23rd through the 29th, nine youth and four adults from Saint Peter will travel to Anarpa, Mexico, to help build a home for the Agustin Hinojosa Alvarez family. Please pray for the group's safe travels and that they all grow closer to God and to one another during this experience.
On Sunday, June 30th, there will be a reception between worship services to say thank you to the congregation for their generous donations that made this trip possible.
