DIXON – The Rev. David Spaulding, pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Dixon, will speak Friday at the church about his recent trip to Kenya.

A potluck dinner will take place at 6 p.m., with the program at 7 p.m. Spaulding went to Kenya from Oct. 24 to Nov. 7 with a mission team from Blackhawk Presbytery as part of a partnership with the Presbyterian Church of East Africa.

The team visited schools and stayed in homes of Kenyan congregation members. They helped Kenyans distribute food in drought-stricken areas and assisted in giving training for church leaders.
