Carwash to support Christina's missionary outreach trip to South Africa

Christina Dobson Christina Dobson, a member of Legacurry Presbyterian Church, will leave on Thursday 5th July to spend two weeks in Durban, South Africa, working with an organisation called Soul Action, a partnership between Tearfund and Soul Survivor. To help finance her trip, Christina is holding a carwash in Legacurry Presbyterian Church car park on Saturday 2nd June from 10.00am until 3.00pm with a suggested donation of '5 per car.

Christina, who is the only one Northern Irish member on this trip will team up with five girls from England and together they will work in Amaoti, the biggest informal settlement in Kwa-Zulu natal situated on the border of Phoenix. With some 14000 residents, many street children come from this area, creating many dilemmas for the Durban municipality. These projects, orphan programmes, feeding initiatives, education and schooling ideas, vegetable gardens etc., will initially be based in Durban, working in the deprived townships and regions of the city in the build up to SOUL IN THE CITY DURBAN. It is these projects that she will be partnering with. Resourced by prayer, finances, people and all manner of tools, ideas and materials, Soul Action Teams will be going out to these projects on a regular basis, learning from, building relationships with, and being changed by the people and communities involved in them.

Please come and support Christina in her Car Wash fundraising venture on Saturday 2nd June at Legacurry Presbyterian Church, which is located at the Comber / Ballynahinch Road crossroads, about three miles from Lisburn.
