We are currently working with the Fuller Center Disaster ReBuilders in Houston, New Bern(North Carolina) and Panama City (Florida). All of the locations have had major hurricanes in the last 2 years. The next trip will be to Houston, where we have been helping rebuild homes from Hurricane Harvey in Sept 2017.
We will be staying at Clear Lake Presbyterian Church and doing new home construction southeast of Houston. Dates are Jan 5 -10, 2020. Cost of the trip is $100 for meals and lodging. Transportation is up to the individual, either fly or drive. Our flights have been a averaging between $250-300, round trip the last few times.
A NOTE FROM PASTOR JOHN…..
Thank you for your generous response to aid those in the Bahamas who were affected by Hurricane Dorian. Over $7000 was collected to be sent to Lutheran World Relief, their teams have been working diligently in the Bahamas since the hurricane struck.
Thank you for your willingness to “step up” and help our brothers and sisters in their time of disaster and great need..
All God’s Blessings! Pastor John Lestock
Bethel partners with an Iringa, Tanzania church called The Cathedral. This partnership includes periodic trips to the area, visits to Bethel from The Cathedral's leaders, and Bethel's sponsorship of students' education expenses in Iringa.
We would like to thank everyone for the contributions received last year for the Tanzania Scholarship Fund. Because of your generosity over 40 student received assistance with their school expenses. During our visit to Tanzania in 2018, the Bethel group visited with several students we support, who attend diocese schools, and had a meaningful time conversing and praying with the about their plans once they have completed secondary school. They offer you their gratitude for your assistance in their education and want you to know that they are praying for you. You are truly making a difference in their lives and the lives of their families.
The scholarship for each student remains at approximately $400/year. However, donations in any amount are welcome. Contributions are held in the scholarship fund at Bethel and the number of students supported depends on the money in the fund. Your donation can be made by check payable to Bethel Lutheran Church. Please make a note on the memo line of your check that this is for the Tanzania Scholarship Fund. Your check may be mailed to Bethel Lutheran Church, 920 third Street, Hudson, WI 54016. We would like to receive all donations by November 1, 2019, so we know how many students we will be able to support in 2020. Our goal is to sponsor at least 50 students.
If you have questions regarding this mission, please contact Alan Park.
