Position Description

BUY don justo COFFEE

If your congregation is able to continue to purchase coffee (even though church fellowship hours are not happening due to COVID-19), would you consider making your typical purchase of coffee and donating it to essential workers?

That's what this member of Trinity United Presbyterian Church in Indianola did by delivering coffee to her local fire department!

Thoughts on the Medical Delegation
by Mike Bassett, Our Sister Parish Board Moderator
"...I want to stop here and make sure you understand who all comprised this TEAM I’m referring to.
It wasn’t just the physicians, nurses and support staff from the states. It also very much included Simei, the Salvadorian doctor who took time off to join us;
the seven Salvadorian translators who made it possible to communicate; the members of the Pastoral Team who provided sage advice, counseled patients, registered patients, fixed our lunch at each clinic, drove us to the clinic sites, bought medications and medical supplies locally and took care of us back at the Pastoral House; the leaders of each community who organized our patients, prepared the sites where we set up our clinics and helped with various needs during the clinics; and local Salvadoran “health promoters” who helped set up follow-up visits or  further consultations or treatment for those who needed it..."
OUR SISTER PARISH MISSION STATEMENT
