God's Work Our Hands was a Success!

Posted by Mark Donahue on Thursday, September 21, 2017 @ 2:47 PM

Thanks to all for making this a great day!  We had many participants packing kits between services.  We put together 35 Hygiene kits and 37 School Supply kits that will be sent to Orphanage Resources International.  This organization supports approximately 50 orphanages, of different sizes, around the Guatemala City area.  We had some supplies left over and those were donated as well.  All the extra school supplies will be sent to TX for those schools impacted by Hurricane Harvey.  The extra hygiene supplies will go to Operation Blessing.  So, thank you again for all the generous donations!  We could not have made this day a success without your support!  Your donations were shared locally, within the US and internationally!  God is good! 

On Sunday afternoon, about 20 Holy Trinity members gathered at the Mark Wentworth Home in Portsmouth to share a moment of song with residents and their visitors.  The room was filled with singers, residents, and residents’ family members who were attending the celebration for national grandparents’ day – an unexpected bonus for us.   Dave Mercer led us in singing song after song – hymns, secular songs, patriotic music, and old favorites – for almost an hour.  Residents and guests sang along as they were able, or mouthed the words that they recalled songs from past moments in their lives.  Music is indeed a powerful force for connecting with others, for supporting a positive sense of mental and physical well-being, and for uniting us as a community.  We left with a shared feeling of wanting to do this more than once a year – maybe together we can make it happen.
