The Evangelical Women's Spring Mission Project of Pedee Memorial Evangelical Church is for the Paintball Camp for Navajo Youth in New Mexico.
Paintball is becoming a very popular and competitive sport for the Navajo youth. Monthly paintball events have been a time of evangelism and outreach for the Kirtland Hope Church youth.
Be sure to have your offering turned in by Sunday, June 22, to help meet the June 30 deadline.
