February Mission
Mountain to Mountain
 

Mountain to Mountain Partnership is a collaborative effort of Christ Church, Big Stone Gap; All Saints, Norton; Christ Church, Marion; Church of the Good Shepherd, Galax; Stras Memorial, Tazewell; St. Marks, St. Paul and St. Thomas, Abingdon.  The partnership is working with St. Paul’s Episcopal School in Beaudin Jean Pierre Haiti  to support the school.  It is a four room concrete block building in a remote village with no power and no water that teaches about 200 children.  Last year the group raised enough funds ($20,000) to pay the staff of 9 teachers and provide lunch to the children (and still had a little left over for educational supplies!).  Plans are being developed to help the school become self-sustaining in the future so they will not be dependent on outside funds to operate.  In addition to providing resources for the school, the partnership has travelled to Haiti every other year to listen and learn how they may best serve our brothers and sisters in Christ in Beaudin Jean Pierre.
 
Please join us in supporting this ministry through prayer, increased awareness, and if you feel so called a monetary gift given in a check made to Grace Episcopal Church and placed in a blue envelop marked Haiti.
