First Priority students were invited to participate in the Helping Hands ministry on Good Friday. There were 8 students who attended and who helped to serve food to over 100 people in need. It was a wonderful way to celebrate our Lord and Savior.
During the week of March 9th-14th which was spring break for Hillsborough County schools, Amber Johansen led a team of 16 to the Dominican Republic through SCORE International. The team, compromised of mostly First Priority students, fed 14o families (one bag of food will feed a family of 5 for a week) and gave away supplies to 4 schools; supplies and funds for food were donated by families of STF and by friends of the team.
In addition to feeding 140 families, the team was able to minister to local families by playing with the children and sharing the Gospel message. Over 250 Dominicans heard the Gospel message, and many prayed to receive Christ or to rededicate themselves to the Lord.
Students were given the opportunity to share their faith, to participate in group devotionals and to attend church. It was a great chance to seek and to share God!
