Pinelands Methodist Church Outreach Missions - "40 Days of Purpose" - Ministry & Mission Fair.

Our stand was next to HIV/AIDS, and our theme (apart from promoting FAVOR) was to make visitors  aware of the dangers and risks of alcohol and drug abuse, risky sexual behavior and HIV/AIDS. We estimate that about 200 people visited the Fair during the day, as we handed out about 250 pamphlets. Some people took 10 or more, to spread around.
