(I figured, with all the rain we’ve received recently, this was an appropriate scripture for the week.) 🙂
SEPT 10th – PASTOR UMAR MULINDE SPEAKS AT BHBC!
Umar Mulinde grew up in Muslim-dominated Uganda. After professing his faith in Christ he was attacked on Dec. 24, 2011. The attackers poured acid on his head and face. Multiple surgeries followed. But the terrifying attack did not affect Umar’s passion for telling the world about Jesus Christ. Pastor Umar will be our guest on Sunday, Sep. 10th. Click here to read more about Pastor Umar’s harrowing experience. WARNING: photos of his injury on his “about” page are graphic.
TEACHERS, COACHES, ADMINISTRATORS…
Some school districts began this week. Others will begin next week. Just a reminder to all those men & women who tirelessly pour themselves into the lives of students…
