First Baptist Church, Fort Payne, on missioncomment (0)
January 7, 2010
Led by Education and Missions Minister Doris Elliott, a team of 12 from First Baptist Church, Fort Payne, recently traveled to Guatemala.
The team from the DeKalb Baptist Association church worked inside Casa Para Niños Aleluya, a Christian orphanage 30 miles from Guatemala City, doing Vacation Bible School, painting and sewing.
The group also hosted a block party one afternoon and an ice cream social one evening for the almost 400 orphans.
The team also delivered donated items and money to the orphanage.
“It was an awesome experience,” Elliott said. “We could see God’s hand on everything.”
