As a church and as individual members, we sponsor and support children who live in the House of Abraham, a boarding house for orphaned or at risk children in Jacmel, Haiti. There are currently 13 children in the house and 9 staff members that assist with education, love, and spiritual guidance. These children were taken from their situation in life and are being taught in a way that in their own way they will be great Christian leaders and examples in their community. It was started in 2011 by Fenel & Mirlande Bruna. Fenel had lived in Celina for 2 years while studying Intensive English at Wright State University. When referring to “coming home” – Mt. Tabor and Celina is it.

Tabitha and Devin Dillinger will take a position with Churches of God Cross Cultural Ministries in July of 2014 at the Hoogan Nizhoni Church near Gallup, New Mexico.
They will be working with the youth and children’s ministries in the church. The church is not on the Navajo reservation, but it is very near and all of the members are Navajo and many live on the reservation. They will be self-supporting, in that Tabitha will be working in an Indian Health Hospital. The conference is providing their housing and utilities. It is very much like a third-world country within the United States. Keep them in prayer.
Mt. Tabor Church of God works with community members from the Rockford area to provide Christmas gifts for local children who may not receive much for Christmas.
