Amir, grandson of Janet Haynes, is heading to Brazil where he and his junior high team will represent the United States in the international Bison Robotics competitions. Amir’s grandma says that since he was a young child Amir was always taking things apart to see how they work.
A straight-A student, Amir and his team won a spot to compete in the international robotics championship. We are so proud of him. Keep him and his classmates in your prayers as they head off for the adventure of their lives.
Saturday’s International Festival was a great success with lots of fun for everyone and loads of delicious food from the many counties that compose our wonderfully diverse congregation.
Over $2,000 was raised, part of which will be donated to Sierra House, a local home for young women preparing for self-sufficiency (see related article).
Our thanks go to Yvette McPherson, and all who worked with her, who made this year’s festival a great celebration of our heritage.
Our special guest at this year’s International Festival was Sierra House, an East Orange-based program that supports young women move into self-sufficiency.
