July 31st marks the 3rd anniversary since the blessing and dedication ceremony of the security wall surrounding the grounds of St. Martin de Porres Orphanage Centre in Sumbawanga, Tanzania. This event was the culmination of our mission team's visit in 2013.
The collaboration between St. Martin's Kids of St. Mary's Catholic Church, Spring Lake, Michigan, Sr. Helena of the Catholic Diocese of Sumbawanga, and Mike Caraway of Grace Community Development & Education brought to fruition the dream of Sr. Aggripina to provide a safe and secure environment for the children living there.
We praise God for His wondrous deeds!!
Enjoy this short video and pictures of the day's festivities!!
