Eastern European Mission

In December 2022, 5 people from FBC Garland went on a mission trip to Poland and Romania.  The purpose of the trip was to provide Christmas celebrations and gifts for 500 Ukrainian refugee children and their families.  Some of these refugees are not believers so another purpose was to share the life changing message of the Gospel.  Please continue to pray for the refugee families, as they have been uprooted and are living in temporary housing.  The weather conditions there are very cold this time of the year and we pray they will be able to continue to stay in the refugee centers throughout the winter months.  Thanks again for praying.

Collection time: 9 a.m. - 11 a.m.
