Missions – February 2016

The Missions Team is rejoicing with our Lord! O’Nelson, a young man from Haiti, has safely arrived in Midland, Michigan. O’Nelson’s mother was robbed and murdered for having a successful roadside business. O’Nelson was shot and left for dead during the incident. The fact that he survived multiple bullet wounds is amazing. God knows the plans he has for O’Nelson! Please continue to pray for him as he makes the transition to life here in the states.
Haiti Mission Trip 2016: The 2016 Haiti Mission Trip is scheduled for June 25-July 2. Please contact Rachel DeKuiper if you are interested in going. We have had one informational meeting already, but it is NOT too late to express interest. We do need to hear from you soon since the team is limited to 13 members and airline tickets need to be purchased. If you are interested in financially supporting someone in going to Haiti, please let us know. We don’t want the financial burden of this trip to be the only factor that keeps someone from going. You can contact Rachel at rmdekuiper@rockfordschools.org.

Easter Baskets for North Kent Community Services: The deacons are excited to announce a service offering for NKCS. We are hoping to gather up to 250 filled Easter baskets for children who may not get to experience the joy of Easter. We will be providing empty Easter baskets along with a copy of the book The Gospel Story to include with the basket. Anyone who is willing to fill them with small toys, treats, and a personal note can pick them up in the lobby starting February 21. Baskets need to be returned by March 13. This is a great opportunity for all!
