We experienced one of our best Mardi Gras Outreach. We thanked the Lord that the rain forecast the night before left our area and families came out in droves!
This year we added two new floats and one wagon to our parade. We also created another parade with one wagon and four floats.
We shared the Gospel with distributed approximately 400 Gospel packets with a Gospel presentation.
