LA GONAVE UPDATE

At Wednesday evening’s Promises we will welcome Pastor Agones of the Family of God Church at Betoiti, Haiti, and Dr. Frankie Jeffery, of North Naples United Methodist Church. They will be giving us an update of the success of the mission work on LaGonave Island.  With them will be the “Haitian Suitcase Boutique” featuring gift items made by the ladies at the church, and sold to support their school and church.  A year ago we hosted Pastor Agones and Dr. Jeffery and learned of their plan to provide the people on LaGonave “a hand up rather than a handout.”  Now we have the opportunity to learn about the next step forward for this mission, and the role that members of Carlson UMC have played in the success.  Dinner, as usual, will be served promptly at 5:45 p.m. so be sure to sign-up on the sheet in the Narthex, online, or call the church office. The evening will include the next segment of our 32-week-long study of the Book of Mark and all the usual group events for children and adults.  This is shaping up to be an evening you won’t want to miss.
