Free Will Offering to support Mission Activity!
First Church Mission Activities include support local and global
missions. Locally we help support the Open Door soup kitchen and
the YMCA homeless shelter, and provide scholarships for area youth.
Globally we have been helping out in Oaxaca, Mexico at an orphanage
for special needs children and building houses and planting trees to
help to improve the lives of folks who live in the dump there.
This year, the mission will be continued help to establish the coffee
co-op, for small coffee farmers who live in the hills around Oaxaca.
Their farms are too small for the major dealers to be bothered with,
and it has caused extreme poverty in these areas. They walk miles
out of the hills for food and supplies, and everyone has to come and
carry back their own supplies…from young children to the most
senior members of the villages.
This year's participants will help to distribute food and supplies to the
people in a remote mountain village in the impoverished state of
Oaxaca, Mexico. The mission group will also help with construction
work at the Simply Smiles base camp, and help on a school building
project in the mountains.
Very strenuous…but very rewarding!
