Judy's love for the Lord and her recent "dance of the Bride' at the OBFO "Season of the Harvest" Celebration at West Central Community Center ignited a fire of "I Can Only Imagine" in dance with the Rogers Dance Troupe, under the direction of Kris Freeland. Together, the Battle Hymn - danced by the students (joined by Andrea, and John Thomas) sounded out the heart of the Lord as the audience received the blessing of the Good News through "DANCE."
Thank you Judy for hearing the call and for dancing!
