Thank you to Sara Nguyen and to the 25 mothers and daughters who packed the fellowship hall at Abiding Presence in Burke, VA to praise the Lord through hip hop and give to the least of these. Power Packed Praise is a Christian ministry aimed at energizing and equipping girls to give thanks and praise to God with their whole heart, mind, and soul by exercising their bodies. Sara gave a free workshop on May 10  in honor of Mother’s Day. Mothers and daughters learned dance moves and sign language to the music of contemporary Christian hip hop, all to benefit 25:40 and Gogo Grandmothers, which supports orphans by supporting the grandmothers who care for them in rural Malawi.

Sara shares Bible verses with mothers and daughters.

The participants learned about the children’s life in Canzibe and how 25:40′s preschool and after school care program helps keep them safe from the devastating effects of poverty and violence. And we learned that children’s lives are similar in Malawi and how Gogo Grandmothers has a similar preschool program in Malawi, providing basic, but much needed services to orphans being raised by their grandmothers.

Thank you to all the participants who helped 25:40 and Gogo Grandmothers raise $650 each!

Sara is holding a Power Packed Praise summer workshop for girls Aug. 4, 6 &8. Register now.
