The would like to take this opportunity to thank those who attended the first, annual Love Is…Valentine’s Day Gala to help build a school and orphanage in Canaán, Haiti. We were thrilled that Ken Bevel was able to be our guest speaker and were captivated to hear the love of Christ in his voice. This is an event that we plan to have every year as our signature event for our fundraising efforts. As you may know, we are a small, not-for-profit organization established for the sole purpose of helping provide churches and individuals the avenue to support Mission Teams. If you are a member of a church, please reach out to your Missions Pastor and tell them about The and let them know that we would love to help them with fundraising. If you are a member of a smaller church and would like us to help you plan your own Mission Trip please send an email to Our vision is to assist people and churches to “help so many that have so little”. We have several other events and programs scheduled throughout the year such as, Mulch for Missions, Mother-Son Dance, and the 2014 Savings Card Program. Your Mission Teams can promote and utilize these as a way to help raise money for their own Mission Teams or just to support The’s ongoing mission-focused ministry efforts. Don’t forget you can also visit the General Store at to buy Christian-themed gifts and apparel and all of the proceeds go to support Mission work locally and around the world. Additionally, if you would like to be a ministry partner with us, you can sign up to provide a monthly donation as we strive to support local Mission Teams and continue to build the school and orphanage in Haiti. Finally, we are planning to lead a Mission Team to Canaán, Haiti in the summer of 2015 so please, consider yourself invited! 

Thank You,
Rick and Samantha Reed
