A-5 Taco Times July 9, 2014 Go ye therefore... By SUSAN H. LINCOLN Managing Editor Churches in this community, regardless of denomination, have aligned their individual missions with global partners in faithand proceeded to the uttermost parts of the earth. In March, First Baptist Church sent Matt Robinson, Cathy Sherrer, Mancel Sherrer, Lee Wiles, Larren Murphy, Larry Wood, Sandy Duff and Kaila Padgett with Pastor Tyler Campbell to Guatemala to assist with clean-up, maintenance and painting of a new church plant. We also helped with a sports camp for children in the village of San Mateo, Campbell added. Our church also raised money to provide food baskets for families and stoves, which the team delivered and installed. Some of our team spent a few days at the base of the volcano, Pacaya. At this location, a camp is being built for students, teachers and pastors with the purpose of continuing local education. In June, First Presbyterian Church commissioned missionaries for service in Jamaica. Bob Bell made his 16th journey with JEMM (the Jamaican Ecumenical Medical Mission). He was accompanied by Kristie Harper, Brad Wilson and Emily Rouse who helped other members of the JEMM team provide medications and clinical care. We see a lot of high blood pressure, diabetes and people suffering from the impacts of hard work in the elements, Bell said. While many were administering medical care, another group built a house for a woman suffering from HIV. As Bell explained, individuals with HIV are ostracized from their families and this woman had been living in the outskirts with her children. The medical team saw 300-350 patients; the dental team served 300. Were not the only medical team which comes to the area, Bell said, but photographs underscored the warm welcome they received. These women came to the clinic, dressed to the nines. The churches we worked with fed us and the women even got together to bring their china from home. It was a sweet gesture. Chicken Foot Soup is among Bells favorites from the region, but Harper loved the mango trees just dripping with delicious fruit. In addition to a spectrum of antibiotics, the team brought school supplies for the children. The motto was unforgettable: Every child can learn; every child must learn. Also in June, First Baptist Church sent Pastor Campbell with Sandy and Benny Duff, Bonnie Sue Agner, ( Sheryl Ann Curles, ( Jordan Crouse ( and Haley Jones to New York City. Our team partnered with Salem Church for Hurricane Sandy relief. While we were there, we teamed up with Tunnels 2 Towers, a non-prot organization that was birthed in honor of a reghter who lost his life on 9/11. Please see page 8

Daniel Everett, Dilan Clark, Anna Morgan, Karl Morgan and Ellie Morgan of First Presbyterian Church joined with seven others from First United Methodist Church to participate in a mission project in Orlando. IMPACT Ministries of Central Florida was founded in 1998 to give youth an opportunity to opportunities during both the spring and summer months. Now, youth from across the United States come together to accomplish home repairs and IMPACTs main purpose is to give young people an community with minor home repairs. IMPACT gives an opportunity for individual lives to be changed ...and teach all nations The bulk of the work was completed in homes, repairing hurricane damage. The remainder of our time allowed for us to assist in the ministries of Salem Church, Campbell said. We canvassed neighborhoods, engaged people in the public arena, and found popular places on Staten Island to share the gospel message of Jesus Christ. The conclusion and climax of the week was a celebration service on a Sunday morning. This was an outdoor service in a park near the church. Here, we had the privilege of watching 30-plus people be baptized. We then served the community lunch. This will be the second year that Jon Anderson has served on the staff with Youth Conference Ministries (YCM), traveling through the United States for two months to many of the Fun in the Son and The Great Escape events. Twenty-two people from Perry participated in the Hands & Feet mission in Haiti where the goal is to care for the worlds orphaned and abandoned with the love of Christ. This was Kendall Cruces fourth trip. When Dorie, Kellie and I were looking for a mission trip, we really loved the vision of the Hands & Feet organization. They dont just care for these children in Haiti to make them available for adoption. Instead, they want to give them proper schooling and as many opportunities as possible so they can grow up in Haiti and bring about the changes needed in their country, Cruce said. The Childrens Village houses 66 children and employs another 60 Haitians. They have house moms and nannies who are like real moms to these children. Others work in the kitchen, do laundry or construction. They want their workers to be Haitian so they can pay them a wage which will, in turn, help their families. When volunteers arrive, Cruce says their tasks are as varied as the individuals who make the journey. When Kellie went, she was a nurse so she did medical assessments. But we have done it all: bookkeeping, construction, painting, organizationwe usually work from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m., and then we have time with the kids, to play. The Cruces devotion to the Childrens Village (Dorie has made ve trips, and Kellie, three), has reverberated throughout Perry. We all come back and become advocates for this mission, she said. Currently, 18 children are being sponsored through our church (First Baptist). She wears a bracelet from a young boy and it reminds me to pray for him, she said. I know what prayer can do. Facebook updates keep her in touch. What we do for these children in Haiti is nothing; what they do for us is everything, she said.
