Missionaries from around the world will be telling their stories at the Mission Fair held at John Knox Village.
“The fair provides everyone the chance to learn more about what missionaries do, meet interesting people and learn about the great work that is taking place by people just like you.” said Chaplain Bev Weddle. “It is easy to get absorbed in our own little world and not be aware of what is going on outside of our comfort zone. This is your opportunity to see missionaries from around the world right here in Lee’s Summit.”
The fair includes more than 30 booths featuring representatives and information about local, regional and global missionaries and missions. Representatives from the Peace Corps, Wheels to Freedom, Rachel House, Youth for a Mission and many more will share information and stories about what they do, why they do it and how to become involved.
The public is invited to attend the Mission Fair from 2-4 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 3 at The Pavilion, 520 N.W. Murray Road, in John Knox Village, a continuing care retirement community which is host for the event.
