 New Video:  Revival - The Oro African Church

Years of love and dedication went into the revival of one of the oldest black churches in Canada. The little log structure built by the first free black settlers in 1849 has taken some lumps and bumps during it's amazing history. Here is a small window into the time it was lovingly restored so it's lessons can continue to inspire and educate.
