Baby Faces for SNAP – (the Beginning of a Hairy Adventure)

Of course, on April fools day, we must highlight some of the shenanigans for SNAP (aka Beards for SNAP).  We kicked off the first ever Beards for SNAP this past Saturday, March 29th here at Desert Springs.  Twelve or so guys were able to attend, with a few more who registered unable to make the Mob Shave.

After chewing on some breakfast tacos for a bit, we were suprised to see Mr. G, church planter headed to North Africa, but currently studying language in Europe appear over FaceTime on the laptop.  He shared how thankful he was for all of the love and support coming from DSC as they’ve transitioned to the field, and especially for these Hairy Face efforts over the next several months.  We were able to pray specifically for them and the serious upcoming challenges they face in 2015 when they head into a city of a few hundred thousand, with no workers, and only two known believers.  May God use them to bring salvation to His elect in this city.

It’s not too late to register and join us.  Just get registered.  Get some pledges.  And Get growing.

Follow the shenanigans on twitter (@KeepABQBeard) and this blog.

Enough words.  Check out the photos:
