"CHRIST HAS INDEED BEEN RAISED FROM THE DEAD" (1 CORINTHIANS 15)
"Jill and I have known John and Sara Barton since 30 years. We were mission teammates in Jinja, Uganda. We share a bond in Christ and in mission that is eternal. We continue to connect regularly as we are involved together at a board level with Kibo and continued travels and preparing groups going over to Jinja from Pepperdine University and The Journey. The Bartons and Taylors love one another's kids, and we watched them all grow up together in Jinja. Now our kids are launching out on God's mission in ways they feel called, and we are happy for all of them." -Greg Taylor
