July 23-29, 2011, Fifteen Youth and Adults from First Baptist Church of LaBelle will be going to Managua, Nicaragua to work with children of the streets and a retirement center. Approximately 15,000 children between ages of 7 and 14 living on the streets, who have been forced to forgo their childhood and prematurely enter the adult reality of hardship and suffering. Besides feeding the children we will do VBS with the children and work in the retirement center.
Here is a list of the following people who are going on our trip this summer. Aaron & Michelle Deerey, Frank Deerey, Jr. Roel Herrera, Emily Hull, Preston Long, Jr., Preston Long, III, Paul Martin, Jennifer Ruble, Savannah Smith, Lori Spangler, Debra Tolar, Corie Tolar, Tonie Tolar, Gregory Zimmerly.
The cost of the trip this year is $1,500 a person. Each person is responsible for raising their own support. Please be in prayer for this group. Some members of our group are still trying to raise their support for this trip. If you would like to help someone out with their support, please let Pastor Preston or Pastor Frank know.
