We love to see how our church-to-church partners in the U.S. are sharing their vision and work with the members of their church. Below is a post from Kathy Davis about River Oaks Community Church "A Night of Hope". A Night of Hope
On August 8th, River Oaks Community Church celebrated their second annual 'Night of Hope' coffee house. Complete with the aroma of freshly brewed coffee and delicious desserts, the body gathered together to see pictures and hear stories about our most recent Church to Church trip to Fountain of Hope in Kenya. This was a tender family night of worship and sharing. We heard from those who went to Nairobi about all that the Lord is doing through the ministries of our church partner. We are blessed to partner with Fountain of Hope as we seek to plead the cause of the orphan, strengthen the local indigenous church, and impact the community side by side for the sake of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We talked about the significance of prayer in our partnership.
The purpose of the evening was to rejoice at what God is doing through our Church to Church partnership and deepen the body's commitment in our work with Fountain of Hope.
