AllNations House Ministry at UWRF Needs Assistance

We had many international students join our church family & worship with us this past year! AllNations House is a campus ministry that exists to serve the international students of UWRF and share the good news of Jesus Christ to see His name glorified among the nations. The ministry has been growing and they have gotten an additional house to use for the ministry, but are looking for some help prepping that house for students. Main needs are:

  • cleaning (anyone that would be willing to come and sweep, scrub, mop, spray, wipe, vacuum, or even put items in cupboards to get the house ready for a fresh start.)
  • a truck
  • a few strong individuals to move furniture into the house
  • donations of beds and mattresses. 

Plans are to begin cleaning Wednesday, August 21, but contact Abby and Alanna for more info at allnationshouseuwrf@gmail.comLet’s partner with them for this wonderful opportunity and expansion!
