Samaritan's Purse Children's Heart Project Child

Children's Heart Project

Calvary is partnering with Samaritan's Purse - Childrens Heart Project by hosting three Mongolian toddlers, their moms, and two interpreters as they arrive in Rochester Feb 20. They have several appointments and tests at the Clinic before undergoing life-saving heart surgery Feb 28 & Mar 1. We are asking for prayer, prepared meals and food staples, Walmart gift cards to support the hosts, interpreter respite, and assists with outings and diversions during their 4.5 week stay. Check out the SignUp Geniuses below to see how you can support this group! Contact person for this is Dianne Orth.

As usual, several families have graciously offered to open up their homes to host and care for the children, interpreters and family members! The coordinators thought it would be great to give the hosts and their guests a welcome basket, with commonly needed supplies for their visit. Will you bless them by signing up on this link to contribute as you can? Please bring the items, marked "CHP" and leave them at the church office during the week. You can also give them to Dianne Orth or Michele Nelson at church on Sundays.
