It was a hot, humid day (July 22nd) when a group from WLCC traveled to Christina’s House in Springfield for a workday. Our group – comprised of young and old, men and women – arrived with tools and supplies in hand and, following a time of prayer, set about creating a vegetable and flower garden for the residents of Christina’s House. We expanded a small existing garden and erected a fence to set it apart from the yard. We were also able to provide them with plants and seeds which will help provide them with fresh food. Our crew also worked very hard cutting and removing all the vines and trees which had grown into the chain link fence surrounding the south side of the property. The yard was transformed through our efforts.
The group included Santiago Noriega, Liz Zurolo, Joe and Donna Chamberlain, Dwight Dean, Lori Sanchez, Ed and Dee Hart, Jim, Vicky, Alex and Sondra Sapoznik, Lacinda Philbrick and Peter Celi (the Chamberlain’s son-in-law). We are deeply grateful for each of these workers who gave their time and effort to be a blessing to the ministry of Christina’s House and the folks they serve. We were able to fulfill our mission of serving the world by traveling to Springfield to provide this ministry.
Our July Mission Moment featured a report from Christina LaCafta, a teacher at the Honor’s Academy in Honduras. Christina, a young lady who was a part of our youth group, will be returning this fall for her fourth year as a teacher representing the Lord and WLCC. What an encouraging report it was.
We will be getting updates on the Hartford Project and the Christina’s House outreach during our August Mission Moment and then in September we will hear from the New Hope Women’s Shelter in Solon, ME when their Director comes to share with us. Your faithful missions giving makes possible our support to these and other ministries and missions around the world. Thank you for your all you do.
