High School Mission Opportunity—HAITI
Our Mission Ministry has scheduled a mission trip for four high school seniors or juniors (2 girls, 2 boys) over the Easter weekend, April 18-22. The cost, including airfare, is estimated to be $1,000.  However, thanks to a successful Fall Festival, $500 is being given to each of the 4 selected students to help defray the cost.
Selection from the applicant pool will be made by the Mission Ministry based upon active involvement in TSPC Youth/High School activities, as well as school activities and community service.
This trip has been described by many of the previous students and adults as a “life-changing”  event – an opportunity to experience life and worship in the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, as well as delivering “Hope Kits” to those parishioners in the small mountain community we have visited for 25 years!
If you are interested in being selected, email your qualifications and/or questions to the Mission   Ministry c/o John Reed (jchiltonreed@me.com) by February 1, 2019.

Tinkling Spring is Planning to Host the WARM Cold Weather Shelter
As soon as you get out those calendars for 2019, please mark the week of February 25 to March 4 on your calendar with the word “WARM.” Think of the individuals Tinkling Spring will be bringing into Spring Hall to give them a WARM place to sleep. Think of the WARM meals they will be served. Think of the WARM welcome you can help give to them. Beginning at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, February 25, and ending at 7:00 a.m. on Monday, March 4, the Waynesboro Area Refuge Ministry’s Cold Weather Shelter will be housed at Tinkling Spring. This will truly be a heartwarming week and many volunteers will be needed throughout the week. By mid-January, you will be able to find the sign-up sheets for the week on the Mission table located across from the officers’ mailboxes.
Volunteers will be needed to prepare and serve meals, serve as monitors in the earlier part of the evening, serve as overnight monitors, and folks will need to help provide food for breakfasts, lunches, and snacks throughout the week. There is a role for everyone to be a part of the week. Questions may be directed to coordinators, John Marcum, and Becky Williams. A third coordinator is desired; if interested in learning more about this opportunity, please call John or Becky.

Health Care in Haiti  Click here for Pictures
John Reed, Carla Byrd, and Page Hearn from Tinkling went June 9th-16th to Haiti with two pharmacists from West Virginia. Thanks to this team 200 children received six months of cavity prevention, newborns received onesies and blankets, children coming to the clinic will receive vitamins courtesy of the two pharmacists from WV. Many children received much needed Claritin, and approximately 30 individuals were given vision tests. God’s love was everywhere, given by our team and from those with whom they interacted. All the children enjoyed things like glow sticks, soccer balls, and food treats.
