MISSION TRIP TO INDIA Pastor Nehemiah, along with Paul and Shanna Van Kampen of the Highland Park Reformed Church, will board a plane on August 3rd after church on a mission trip to India. They will visit and spend time with 36 orphan and semi orphan children at the NIRAS Home for Children in Nagercoil ( 8 miles north of the Indian Ocean). Shanna will teach  English to the kids, and Paul will teach them some American praise songs. They will also teach God's love to them.  Pastor Nehemiah started this Home in the aftermath of 2004 Asian Tsunami that left many children orphans. He has been raising all their support in his churches in the U.S., including us. Pastor Nehemiah will do two bible study conferences for the youth. A good number of the youth are Hindus and they get to learn about Jesus. Any questions about this  trip, or to sponsor a child, or to make a donation, talk to pastor Nehemiah. Sponsors from our church now include: Emily Reiff, Amy Bitalla, Joyce Crabiel, Jan Yocum, and Jeni Pinnella.
