$1200 was sent to Porch de Salomon in Guatemala last October from the proceeds of our PIE DAY sale.
This is the same place that our youth will go to this summer for their mission trip. Did you know that the church’s Mission Committee also has earmarked $1,000 for this project for 2018 and in the new budget for 2019. Georgia Bacquet, our treasurer, received a newsletter from Porch de Salomon about the cost of things they provide. She thought the congregation might be interested in how our $1200 donation might have been spent:
$60- One month’s protein (eggs, beans, milk, more) for an indigenous family
$60- One month’s milk and medicine for a malnourished infant
$85- A multi-purpose, concrete sink
$90- A clean water system for a family
$100- One month’s in-patient alcohol/drug rehab for an addict
$195- An efficient wood stove for a family
PW raised $1200 dollars with the support and generosity of the congregation from Pie Day! This money was sent to Porch de Salomon in Guatemala! We thank you for your generosity, and send continued prayers to our mission partners and the people of Guatemala.
When I emailed Lloyd Monroe to find out where to send the check he was amazed that we were sending $1200. He seemed extremely excited about it. We did not say where we wanted the money spent so I can only guess where they applied it. ~ Georgia
