Westwood Baptist Church, Alabaster, on missioncomment (0)

August 12, 2010


Ty Coffey, minister of communications and creative design of Westwood Baptist Church, Alabaster, traveled to Port-au-Prince, Haiti, May 23–29 with Tim Wampler, president of Delaware-based Shoes 2 Share International.

The two men delivered 6,500 pairs of shoes collected by the Shelby Baptist Association church. In February, Westwood Baptist held a barefoot Sunday when people were encouraged to wear a pair of shoes to donate to Haiti during the morning service. With the help of its members and members of another Baptist church in Alabaster, the church gathered 3,500 pairs of shoes. A local man donated the other 3,000 pairs anonymously.

Besides delivering the shoes, Coffey preached, shared the gospel and assisted with a medical clinic.
