Hello Friends!  As you may have heard, two members of our congregation, Bob and Kathy Gunther, are planning on traveling to Haiti as part of the local Medical Mission Group. Please see the recently updated list below, provided by Bob Gunther, if you would like to donate to this amazing effort.

(for more information/questions contact Kathy or Bob Gunther,  943-1944, bokagun1@ntelos.net)

The 2015 Medical Mission to Haiti is a group of 14 folks from our community that have volunteered to serve through this Presbytery endorsed mission that has been coordinated by Tinkling Spring Presbyterian Church.   This mission has been ongoing for over 20 years in partnership with the local Haitian church and community.  In the last 5 years following the earthquake the mission has been directed toward community healthcare.  It is a continued blessing to provide this opportunity to experience the love of our Savior in and through the Haitian people.
