Members of the Faith Lutheran Church in Estevan is busy preparing for their upcoming missions trip to Nicaragua.
"Faith Lutheran has a team going on a mission trip to Nicaragua January 1-10," explained Marlene Eagles, with the church.
While there, they will be assisting with the Mission Feeding Centre.
"We've sponsored a Mission Feeding Centre there for many years and that's one thing we will be doing. The Feeding Centre make sure that the children there get three nutritious meals a week. So we're trying to raise money to take along."
Fundraising events will be held on November 24th at 1213 4th Street and will feature stew and a bun for $6. The second will be on December 7th during downtown's Midnight Madness. Sloppy joes, chips and a drink will be on sale for $6.
"All the proceeds will be taken along and it's helping out the feeding centre there in Nicaragua."
For now, Eagles shared that they are busy sewing clothes to take with them.
"We do cut and sew for missions and a lot of the items that we're sewing, we have dresses, we have shorts, we will be taking for the children. We have hygiene kits for the ladies. And that's kind of my mission, is to hopefully promote that in Nicaragua because I don't think there have been any teams that have done that so far. So I'm praying that will work out great for us."
"Our sewing team, we do accept gently used t-shirts and from there, we make a few cuts in them and recycle them as shorts for boys. So that's one way people can certainly help. There's usually some cotton fabric we recycle and make into dresses so if anyone is interested, just stop by. We're there every Tuesday from 10 am til 4 pm.
"I'm sure if they want to make a donation, they could make it through the church and get a charitable receipt for that."
