The Columns – November



Dear First UMC,

I wanted to drop you a note to say how much our partnership with First United Methodist Church means to all of us at Give Hope Global. Words cannot adequately express how much we appreciate what you have done in support of our medical program at the Cambry Medical Clinic. Without your ongoing financial support for Dr. Osselin’s salary we simply could not have accomplished all that we have with regard to providing medical and dental care for 400 orphans
and for many other adults in the villages at Cambry and Darivager. Thank you!

We also greatly enjoy our partnership in support of Pastor Mongerard, his family and the children of Darivager. Your contribution to the purchase of the truck that he so badly needed was just what we required to make that happen for him. I recently received a note from Pastor Louis St. Germaine at Cambry telling me that he didn’t know how Pastor Mongerard would have survived this year’s drought without that truck. Every day he has been driving to haul water back until the well can recover from this unheard of dry spell.

By the way, please tell your donors that I wish that every one of them could have seen the joy of all the Darivager family when their team won the Give Hope
Cup in February. You would have thought they had just won the World Cup! It was a thing of beauty to see. Without your church’s support these kids would not have the energy to even compete much less walk away with the Cup. I know how much your congregation loves these kids and our teams feel the same way. We can hardly wait to see what God has planned for them in the future.

To God be the Glory,
All His best to all of you,
Roger Braswell and Angela Quinn
