Marci Wilham is going to Haiti and needs our Support

Marci Wilham, a member of our church, is going to Haiti on a mission trip and she needs our support: 

Bruner’s Chapel Baptist Church Members, 
      I will be travelling to Haiti on a mission trip beginning March 31st and ending April 10th. Haiti is a fourth world country that is in great need of our assistance. Two thirds of the Haitian people are unemployed and have to rely on the support and giving hearts of neighboring countries for supplies such as food, water, shelter, and clothing.  The needs of the country have grown tremendously due to the devastating earthquake that tore through Haiti on January 12th, 2010.
      As a group we will be travelling to Port-au-Prince where we will be assisting in several different projects among the communities. This includes working with the children in the orphanages, and helping mentor many different age groups in the programs they have previously established.  A new orphanage is being built and we will assist in tasks such as painting, building furniture and we will also have the privilege of working in the medical facilities. This relief effort is crucial to a population that has been through such a heartbreaking disaster.
      There will be many opportunities to witness to people in the community that we will be working with daily. Our goal is to share Christ’s love with everyone we come in contact with.  We hope to do this on a spiritual and physical level as we provide for the Haitian people. I am so blessed to have been given this opportunity to share God’s word, and I would appreciate all the support that could be given. The cost of the mission trip is $2000. This amount will cover airfare, food, and sheltering needs.  Your thoughts, prayers, and donations would be such a blessing for not only me, but for the Haitian people as well.  In supporting me you will be selflessly helping God’s children who cannot provide for themselves at the time.
                                          With Love,
                                                      Marci Wilham

Let's all be in prayer for Marci as she goes, and if you feel led to give towards her trip, please do so this Sunday.
