18 Jul Easter Offering 2014: Your Gifts Made the Difference
July 18, 2014 |0 Comments
The 2014 Easter Offering raised over $23,000 to help our United Brethren brothers and sisters around the world. That money, along with other funds, enabled us to send:
- $15,000 to Mexico—for leadership development in our 45 churches. Rev. Denis Casco, bishop of Mexico Conference, had just canceled plans for a training event. But upon learning the funds were on the way, Casco quickly reinitiated plans for this and other training activities for the coming year.
- $10,000 to Nicaragua—to complete their conference center with classrooms, dining facilities, and lodging for 48 persons.
- $15,000 to Sierra Leone—to complete the renovation of Harmonie House. This dormitory-style house will provide lodging for visiting physicians, work teams, and volunteers. Recently, the national conference signed a three-year agreement with World Vision that will bring teams of visiting physicians four times per year to Mattru Hospital. The only commitment on the hospital’s part is to provide appropriate housing. Your gifts made it possible for us to complete the renovations ahead of schedule in anticipation of the first team of physicians arriving in August 2014.
