Metal to Metal Fundraiser and Trip Informational Meeting

20 01 2011

OK, I have 2 points of interest for those of you interested in going on the April mission trip and for those who just want to help here at home.

For those interested in going on the trip there will be an informational meeting on Sat 1/29, 8a at the Brockton campus of South Shore Community Church.  Please try to fill out an application and send it to me before the meeting at: Volunteer.  If you’re not sure that you can come to Senegal, just show up and get your questions answered.

ALSO:  We are putting on a fundraising scrap metal drive and need your help.  Check out the SSMN website events tab for details.  If you’re able to help haul the scrap or just lend us a hand, please contact Ken Roderick; especially for collection days 2/13, 2/19, 3/13, and 3/19.

Mission Trip coming up in April

17 01 2011

We’re currently putting together a mission team to travel to Senegal April 2-10, 2011.  If you’re interested in going please fill out the application and send to our volunteer coordinator at:  Volunteer.   This team will be largely construction oriented with a small medical and teaching component.

We will be involved in building a vocational school that will be geared toward housing and training the poor and marginalized boys in the poorest section of St. Louis, Senegal.  A compassionate heart and willingness to serve are the only prerequisites.

We will also assist and come alongside the medical personal in the medical clinic at the Yoonu Njup Community Center.  They have very little opportunity for training; we hope to evaluate and treat patients side by side and learn from each other.  We are looking for nurses, doctors and others with medical training that are willing to serve.

In addition there is opportunity for interaction and teaching in the girls’ school.  We need someone who is willing to just “hang out” and perhaps teach on life skills, nutrition, or whatever you would like.  Just our presence and love is an encouragement to these girls.

If your interested in just exploring the idea of being part of this team, but not ready to apply  -stay tuned-  we will have an organizational meeting soon, date to be announced.
