Mission Tree Fundraiser:  November 26 is the last day of the Mission Tree Fundraiser to help cover the girls’ school uniforms, backpacks, school supplies and books ($3,100).  Due to very high inflation in Haiti, costs for caring for our girls have risen substantially. There are tags on the Mission tree in the foyer.  Please choose a tag, put a check (made out to Strong Tower) or cash into the attached envelope and deposit it into the box in front of the tree.  ANYTHING you can do will be a huge blessing.  Thank you for your continued support of our beautiful Haitian girls.
