Fall Festivals

To help ring in the fall and use the blossoming feel of the holidays for outreach events, we did the UniShow at Grace Church in Racine, WI with Go Fish and at Alliance Church of the Valley in St. Croix Falls, WI.

Grace Church in Racine was a particularly neat place to have an event since Dustin has many family roots there. His great-grandmother went to this very Grace Church just after coming to America from Germany, way back when it was a German Baptist and services were in German. We found some landmarks around town where various grandparents had lived and worked and visited the cemetery where 8 of Dustin's family members are buried.

St. Croix Alliance was also a blast from the past event as the pastor who coordinated this event is the brother in law of Dustin's childhood best friend, Perry. He was able to come with his family and meetings and greetings rekindled the friendship.

We praise God for these events where 100 people came to Christ for the first time! Happy Falling into God's arms!
