WMPC Mission Trip

A group of youth from White Memorial is in Haiti this week on a mission trip. I hear that they hiked up (and down) a mountain to a village and learned how to grind coffee beans (without the benefit of a Krups machine!), iron with a charcoal iron, hand wash clothes, roast peanuts, cut and cook all kinds of fruits and vegetables, pick rocks out of rice, and sew on a treadle machine. They all reenacted Haitian history through a drama production with all kinds of props. Today they are traveling to Fondwa to work at the orphanage. Please hold them up in your prayers this week! Our director of missions is with them so the financial update will need to wait until her return! Keep those contributions flowing! God bless, Carol

We are on our way!

I am so happy to report we are well on our way to $5k for the HAITI WELL. While I don't have a dollar figure yet, I hope to next week. Many friends have reported mailing a check and I have delivered several checks personally and JOYFULLY!! Next week I hope White Memorial will be able to give me a "status" number and I'll share the good news!
Thanks to all you who have contributed. Contributions to White Memorial are confidential but if you tell me that you have sent a check, I can send you a thank you - so please share. Here or via email carol.vassey@gmail.com

Blessings to all!
