Thank you to everyone who has contributed to our annual Annie Armstrong Offering. You may continue to donate through April and help Westway reach our goal this year.
April 26th will be Compassion Sunday. Hopefully you are aware that our church has sponsored a young girl in Mexico, Tanya Reyes, for several years through our monthly Missions budget. The sponsorship funds are administered through the program at her local church. The money provides food and needs for her and her family and allow her to shop for school clothes and supplies. (The things so many of our take for granted.) We also send gifts for Christmas and her birthday and write letters in answer to hers.
“I want to tell you that I have been doing well at school. I’ve been taking exams and I did well, my teachers say I’m a good student. My sister Mayra came to Mihuatian but she left soon to Mexico City. I’m so excited that holidays are coming up. We participated in a parade a few days ago since we celebrated November 20th. We won because our theme was the best! I love so much!! Please take care, say hello to everyone. Please pray for my uncle’s health. I would like to ask you what are school uniforms like over there? I want to thank you for writing to me and praying for me, Tanya”.
On Compassion Sunday, you will have the opportunity to learn about children across the world that need sponsors. Please pray about becoming an answer to one of their prayers. Only $38 monthly changes the future for each child sponsored. Many of our Westway members currently sponsor children and can tell you the blessings each time they receive a letter from their child/children. (As you can tell, it takes a while for a letter to be translated and received.) You can read Tanya’s letter on our Mission Board in Fellowship Hall.
Also — Remember to pick up a bag to fill for our local food and homeless mission Cy-Fair Helping Hands!
