Concert raises cash for Africa trip
BJs Coffee in Forest Grove will host a fundraiser Monday, Aug. 30, for Lynda Weavers mission trip to Rwanda with Africa New Life Ministries.
Weaver, a former Gaston resident who works at Smarty Pants in Forest Grove, will be traveling with other members of Sonrise Church in Hillsboro to work with Rwandan children and homeless women, including a number of refugees who were recently expelled from neighboring Tanzania.
Weaver, who now lives in Hillsboro, said she has saved up $800 of the $3,100 cost (which includes plane fare) and hopes Mondays concert will help close the remaining gap.
Rudy Tinoco of Sonrises Forest Grove campus will perform from 6 to 8 p.m. The $15 tickets include coffee and pastry. BJ's Coffee is located at 2834 Pacific Ave.Add a comment
