Innove Grant, Round 2 and Bethel Dinner

We have been selected to move onto Round 2 of the Innove grant application process, funded by Colonial Church of Edina, MN. Daylight is one of now 45 applicants, narrowed down from 139 applicants in Round 1.

For Round 2, we were asked to create a 2-minute video explaining why we think Innove should pick Daylight to be a semi-finalist for this grant. Check out the video!

Please keep praying for Daylight during this process. We learn if Daylight is a semi-finalist mid-February.

Daylight Dinner Party @ Bethel University
There was a great turnout at Bethel University for Bethel’s first Daylight dinner! Around 25 people attended the event, with a number hailing from Kenya!

We enjoyed a Kenyan meal of beef stew, ugali, and rice topped off with a piping hot cup of Kenyan chai.

Moreover, it was an honor to hear from Lenny and Lauren’s hearts as they each shared touching stories of their times at Daylight. We listened and prayed together as God moved in our hearts, ending the night with some great conversations.

I am excited to see what God has in store for Daylight’s relationship with Bethel as we start our first campus fundraiser of the new year!
