CEPAD, the Protestant Church Council in Nicaragua that is organizing our upcoming mission trip, has written and asked if we could bring some school supplies.
They will be used for the Psychosocial Group, wherein women and children are trained to provide emotional and social support to people in the community who are suffering from domestic violence, alcoholism or other trauma. This program also offers special support to children with learning difficulties caused by violence in the home.
Old Firsters may want to contribute to this collection as a way to support those going in mission.
Pieces of cardboard or poster board
5 bottles of liquid glue
4 boxes of colored pencils
20 packs of pencils
7 boxes of crayons
1 silicone gun
If people bring any of these items to church on either the June 17 or 25 and place them in the baskets by the door to the sanctuary, we will take them with us to Nicaragua for the community of Mesa Sur.
