How? By sponsoring part of Pam Lindsey's mission trip through HopeHouse International this June.
As you know, Pam is the Coordinator of our Children's Enrichment Program.
Pam and her sister, Sheila, will journey to Ukraine, visiting orphanages and bringing the children gifts of Bibles, clothing, toys, and toiletries.
But they aren't just providing material gifts.
Pam and Sheila grew up singing and playing instruments together.
They were invited to participate in this mission trip as the musical team, uplifting the children's spirits through song.
Pam and Sheila will teach the children how to make music with homemade instruments, showing them that anyone can make music, anywhere, anytime.
The Center will underwrite a portion of Pam's trip.
It is very appropriate for us to do so, as what she
will be doing is almost like an international extension of Children's Enrichment Program, serving children who need a little extra love, providing them happiness through music.
If you would like to share in Pam's joy, you may make a donation to HopeHouse International, with Pam Lindsey's
name written on the memo line of your check, and mail it to the Center.
The deadline for Pam
to raise her
funds is March 30, so please don't delay!
Thank you.- TRS
