At Westminster, we are committed to vital mission partnerships in the West African countries of Ghana, Liberia, and Sierra Leone.
Along with our partners, we strive to transform the lives of children and families in Ghana, Liberia, and Sierra Leone through projects addressing shared priorities. We recently received news and photos from mission partners in Ghana and Sierra Leone to highlight events held this past December that focused on providing nutritional food, school supplies, and special Christmas treats for children.
As always, donations are gratefully accepted.
We thank our generous donors who support these and other mission projects.
Contributions are most gratefully received online (wpcalbany.org/give) or checks can be sent to Westminster Presbyterian Church, 85 Chestnut St. Albany, NY 12210 (“West African Mission” on the memo line).
Please help us keep you up-to-date by making sure we have your most current and preferred email address by notifying the Church Office at email@example.com or calling 518-436-8544.
Ghana: News and Greetings from Barbara Asempa, Director of HOCAP
Hello Westminster Friends!
Happy New Year to you and the entire family. On behalf of the HOCAP (Home of Care and Protection) family, we want to say thank you very much for your generous gift which made our “Christmas Love Box” event* a success. In all we served about 150 children from 3 orphanages and from the Nyitawuta community we served about 300 deprived children and 100 adults. GOD BLESS YOU
The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor ~ Prov 22:9 (NIV)
* Christmas Love boxes contain such items as a packed lunch, a bottled beverage, bowl, cup, spoon, towel, exercise books, pencils, pens, erasers, sharpeners, crayons, story books, mathematical sets, socks, toys, biscuits, toffees, and chocolates.
