As many of you know, Pastor Stinnett’s brother, Rev. Eric Stinnett, teaches at Mekane Yesus Seminary in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The seminary is dedicated to training faithful Lutheran pastors and other church workers to serve in Ethiopia.
On August 17th, Eric, his wife Johanna, and children Rachael, Naomi, Luke and Levi lost most of their belongings in a flood. Their house was totally flooded, with water reaching within a foot of their ceiling. Thankfully, the Stinnetts are safe, but they now face the daunting task of replacing all their belongings.
If you would like to support the Stinnetts financially we will be collecting donations through October 24th. Please make checks payable to “Our Redeemer” and put “Stinnetts” in the memo line. Donations can be placed in the regular offering plate. Designate “Stinnetts” in your on-line Vanco one-time special donation.
Thanks in advance for your prayers and support. If you have any questions, please contact Rachel Nichols at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the church office at 401-232-7575.
