HOME of Westminster Presbyterian Church of Hattiesburg
Seven ladies from WPC attended the Fall Gathering of PW in Presbytery of Mississippi held Sept. 22 at Prospect Presbyterian Church in Meridian. Tom Sykes is currently serving as pastor there, and he shared a beautiful devotional with the group. It was wonderful to see him and hear that this small church is now growing. The Fall Gathering provides an opportunity for PW groups to receive information about projects and programs for the coming year including mission opportunities. This year they have accepted a new mission challenge: to raise $7500.00 over the coming year for Mission Haven. Recognizing the great value of the work being done by our missionaries, PW accepted this challenge to help with the much needed renovations of the bathroom and kitchen in Apartment 2-B, the unit at Mission Haven our presbytery is partnered with. Although the other rooms of this unit were renovated in 2014, these two important rooms are original to the building which was erected in 1953, and they are in dire need of updating. The comfortable and attractive housing Mission Haven provides is greatly appreciated by those who stay there as expressed by Randy and Deanna Harrison, missionaries who will soon return to Ivory Coast and who are staying in a recently renovated apartment. They write, “On this visit, we were overwhelmed by the incredible kitchen and bathroom renovations. What a difference it has made. Thanks to the Presbyterian Women for this ministry.” In offering hospitality, housing, clothing, prayers to these partners in mission, we touch the whole world. I’ll give updates on our progress as they become available.
