As part of their ongoing missions program, Twelve Corners Presbyterian Church (TCPC) supports Hands & Feet Project missionaries Randy and Denise McGarvey. Denise works to establish proper daycare pre-school plans to assist families where both parents work–a major advancement in helping families in Haiti and an expression of their dedication to helping youth to be safe and grow in the Christian faith. Twelve Corners also helped fund new furniture for residents at the Hands & Feet Project. The McGarvey’s will be in the Rochester area to share about recent progress with the students in Haiti.
In another expression of support, the TCPC fellowship hall was home to an event arranged by the Lilac Children’s Garden school group. The event was designed to connect their own students to students from a different culture–many who are orphans or have been abused. M-LISADA, (Music, Life Skills, & Destitution Alleviation) founded in 1996, presented the musical talents of Ugandan youth who shared via voice, dance, and native musical instruments in a program they developed in a Ugandan residential school. Sandy Brewer, mission team memebr from TCPC, said: “We saw confident young people perform on unusual instruments, sing songs, and lead children in dance steps. On stage, girls and boys performed on the drums. There were crafts for sale. Children spoke of their culture.” This presentation, part of a three-week tour in the United States, helps to fund education and housing for youth in Uganda.
