Helping Those Who Cannot Help Themselves

Christian Church of Jasper just concluded a fundraising effort to help build an orphanage in Haiti. The 99 Days Project began August 12 and ended November 18. (You can read more about the project at CCJ's website and blog--both linked in this post--and also, in the November 17 issue of The Herald. During that time, groups and individuals within CCJ came up with creative ways to raise money to contribute to the project. At the celebration service yesterday the total neared $40,000.00! Associate Pastor, Mark Messmore, put together a touching video closing the project. Go here and watch the video at the "99 Days Closing..." post.
