Donations needed for Mexico

The Arizona/Southern Nevada District Impact Choir is a traveling choir made up of only the most exceptional teens from all over Arizona and Southern Nevada with a single goal in mind, to praise and worship the Lord.

They minister to 10 churches throughout the year with a unique blend of praise and worship and fun that is sure to touch the hearts of all who attend their services.

They are asking us to help them prepare for their summer work and witness trip by donating the following items: rice, beans, flour, oil, sugar, canned peas, green beans and corn.

Also needed are over-the-counter medicines like Tylenol, ibuprofen, cold and allergy medications, stomach medications and diapers. These are truly helpful when reaching out for Christ to the people in Mexico.

For more information, call Church of the Nazarene at (928) 474-5890.
