Medical Mission Support Opportunity to Assist Our Missionaries in Guinea Africa

Missionaries Tim and Beth Heiney are back home in Guinea West Africa. Member Alice Tritsch invites us to participate in a project for Beth in medical ministry that was established by a fellow missionary!

Homemade diapers for babies and adults; lightweight layettes for newborn babies; homemade sanitary napkins and underwear for women are needed for the people of Guinea.

On February 16th at 1 p.m. everyone is invited to cut out and assemble some of the above items. There will be a box in the church annex to collect donated items for these projects.

Lightweight infant size blankets, skull caps for newborns and booties (may be hand knitted), white cotton material to make changing pads, new white cotton underwear for women (size small or medium), white Velcro strips (non-sticky), white t-shirts (may have a logo printed as we can use the back side of fabric for the diapers). Note: ALL items need to be bleach-able except for the skull caps and booties for the babies.

We also need cash donations for postage as it is expensive to send these necessary items. Thank you for prayerfully considering this medical mission. Please contact Alice at 620-727-2482 or waaltr@gmail.com if you have questions or can help.
