Other Mission News:
Ark Singers – The situation in the Ukraine continues to be very uncertain and we need to continue to keep the Ark Singers and the people of the Ukraine in our prayers. All moneys collected for the Ark Singers are kept in America and are transmitted electronically when safe to do so. It is now time to start collecting our 2nd quarter donation. Money can be given to Jane Indyk or put in her mail box until the end of June.
Hands on Mission Project – Health Kits for Zimbabwe – We collected $225 and 16 health kits at the time this newsletter article was written. This is enough to send 20 kits and cover all the shipping. Thank you for your generosity.
The Hands of Christ – Please continue to keep John and Dr. Ana in your prayers as they minister to the people of Honduras and continue work on building a women’s hospital. The building project is a pay as you go undertaking so please consider making a donation to this worthwhile project. Donations can be sent to The Hands of Christ Inc., Capital Campaign, P.O. Box 1252, Franklin, TN 37065. 100% of all donations to the building fund go directly to construction cost. No general overhead or daily operating costs are paid from the building fund.
OTHER MISSION FUNDS DISBURSEMENT
We pledged at our Charge Conference to help support Chattanooga District missions. To do this, we gave from mission funds $150 each to the Bethlehem Center and Camp Lookout.
We have sent $550 from the craft and bake sale funds to The Hands of Christ, a medical mission run by John and Dr. Ana Lamon in Honduras to provide the poor of that country with medical care. They provide medical care themselves and work with mission teams from the USA that do dental, vision and medical care. They have started to build a women’s hospital. On Sunday August 31st Jim Burris, the architect for the Hands of Christ Hospital, presented a slide show about the Hands of Christ and we collected a $455 donation for this project.
A total of $2000 has been dispersed from our craft and bake sale funds for the above mission items.
Thanks to the generosity of everyone at Chapel Hill our mission outreach this year was approximately $21,293 and many volunteer hours of service. This dollar total does not include shoeboxes packed by individuals for Operation Christmas Child, 5 five gallon food buckets for Liberia, food bank food donations, or Christmas gifts for foster children.
