Haiti Missions Thank You
The Mission Committee would like to thank you for your continued support of Pastor Widelson and his orphanage in Haiti. Once again this congregations generosity has enabled us to send our full monthly support directly to Pastor Widelson.
Bus for Haiti
Pastor Widelson requested a school bus for transporting the 45 orphans and members of his congregation to church, and God has provided! We received a bus (donated), filled it with supplies and food and sent it to Haiti. Thank you to all who helped with this big project.
* March 2013: Trip to Haiti to collect and deliver the bus.
* November 2012: medical clinics held and Pastor Widelson received his US Visa.
* November 2011: we delivered laptop computers and held computer classes for our Haitian friends.
The number one goal of our Haiti mission has always been to provide support for the children of Pastor Widelson's orphanage. Without this orphanage, many of the children would be starving on the streets of Port Au Prince. Pastor Widelson and his family not only provide daily basic needs for the children, but also make sure that they all attend school and participate in his church.
The Mission Commission updates the congregation on our Haiti Mission on the 4th Sunday of the month during Sunday Worship. At this time, a monthly offering is collected for the children of Pastor Widelson's orphanage.
Interested in learning more about our Haiti mission? Then please feel free to attend our next meeting, which takes place on the 3rd Tuesday of the month, 6:30 pm, at St. Paul's.
St. Paul's members usually visit the orphanage in Haiti once per year, with each traveler paying their own way. Haiti trip members typically include: nurses, medical professionals, computer professionals, photographers, and all around helpers.Want More Information? Contact us.
