Familyfest displays Christ’s love in Colorado community

Members of Moundville Baptist Church, Moundville, Ala., came to Familyfest to serve the needs of the people in Aurora together as the body of Christ.

AURORA, Colo. -- For 10 years, Owen and Ruth Ann Smith prayed a special prayer for the people of Colorado. After serving 14 years on short-term missions trips in various locations across the country, the couple longed for their state to experience a nationwide missions event as well. This year, that prayer was answered, as the Smiths served at Familyfest in their home city of Aurora, Colo., from June 25–29, marking their 25th missions trip with national Woman’s Missionary Union.

The Smiths served alongside 110 other volunteers, 50 of whom were children. The volunteers represented nine states and served eight ministry sites in Aurora through construction projects, outreach events, evangelism, acts of kindness and prayerwalking.

Familyfest offered a real-world, hands-on opportunity for families, youth groups and friends ages 6 and up to bridge generational gaps and display the love of Christ together among those who don’t know Him.
