Our mission focus for May will be to provide school kits to be distributed in Africa. Many children in America struggle to maintain adequate school supplies, that struggle is magnified even more in places like Africa. Please consider filling a backpack with the following items and drop them off at guest services or in the sanctuary by May 28. Questions contact Susie at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Powell Church partnered with Haitian Impact Christian Ministries, http://hicm.us/sites/hicm, in 2013 and purchased land in Langon, Haiti. In 2014 local Haitians built a church on the land. Our next step is to build a school near the church to further support the community.
Powell Church has taken a team to Chichicastenango, Guatemala each summer since 2009 in partnership with Samaritan Hands. Team activities include construction projects in support of the Hogar del Nino orphanage; conducting vacation bible school in local churches and schools; conducting a women’s bible study; and providing water filters to families so they can have safe, clean water. See http://www.tivawater.com to learn more about the filters.
