Missions We Support
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.
