Active in Mission Thank you 2022
We were pleased to have Harry Gardner and Earle Illsley represent Kentville Baptist again this year in the Active In Mission challenge by walking each day for a week for CBM vulnerable kids and orphans education in Rwanda.
The 2022 goal was to keep kids learning in the 9 countries where CBM is are currently working (Bolivia, India, Rwanda, Lebanon, Myanmar, DR Congo, the Dominican Republic, Guatemala and the Philippines). The fundraising goal was $60,000 towards kids’ education programs so that children can hope for a better future.
