Mighty Kids Arise

Another exciting event recently took place as a crowd of kids (and parents) came together on a farm in Brandwacht to worship Jesus! Despite pouring rain that broke out in the middle of the worship time, most kids and parents stayed on to continue worshiping in the house. Enjoy the photos taken at the event
