My heart is still leaping for joy from Sunday’s service at First Baptist! This post is selfishly being written so that I can look back and remember the highlights of Sunday (sorry!). Hopefully, you will find it interesting and if you are in the area, maybe you can even try to see these talented young adults from South Africa before they return to Winterveldt. More information about Bokamoso Youth Foundation can be found HERE. Our connection to this group came by way of one of our families at the church who is a part of the Dance Ministry. The Dance Ministry chose to bring Bokamoso to the church as their mission project.
PB greeted the youth before service began.
They were already dancing and praising God just listening to our praise and worship service going on the sanctuary! I think they felt at home right away!
They sang, danced, recited poetry, and had audience participation in their presentation. One student also shared with us about her goals and how the Bokamoso Youth Center has helped her reach her goals.
After service, we had a small reception for them and served them lunch. Cub 4 made a friend and had a hard time letting her go.
If you are interested in seeing them before they leave, here’s a few of the places where you can find them:
Sunday, January 19th (11:00am) Westminster Presbyterian Church, 400 I St. SW DC
Friday, January 24th (7:30pm) St. Andrews Episcopal School, 8804 Postoak Rd., Potomac MD
Sunday, January 26th (9:30am) Seekers Church, 276 Carroll St., NW DC
Sunday, February 2nd (9:30 & 11:00am) Metropolitan Memorial United Methodist Church, 3401 Nebraska Ave. NW DC

Sunday, February 9th (9:30 & 11:00am) All Souls Church, 16th & Harvard Sts. NW DC
They were blessed by our service, and our church family was truly blessed to have them share with us! We can’t wait for them to return next year!
