Fulfilling the Biblical Mandate
And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20
The RRC Missions Council seeks to support the congregation in keeping this biblical mandate in several ways:
- Supporting and encouraging participation in Kingdom building outreach.
- Supporting and encouraging communication between members of our congregation and the missionaries our church supports.
- Providing opportunities for members to spread the gospel.
Ongoing events and programs include the apple pie sale, farmers’ market bake sale, Christmas gift wrapping, Walls of Hope, and mission trips.

HFAP Sponsor Children
The RRC Missions Council is now sponsoring a child through Haiti Foundation Against Poverty. Please remember to keep him in your prayers.
For $30 a month a sponsor can provide education, clothes, food, and medical attention to a child in need. If you would like to learn more or possibly sponsor a child yourself, please visit HFAP’s website.
Prathy Duval is a 16-year-old student at Les Bours School of Hope. He has two sisters and two brothers. His favorite color is black and his favorite sport is soccer. He loves to eat rice and vegetables with bean sauce.
Because RRC Missions Council has agreed to sponsor this child, he has the privilege of going to school, wearing a uniform, eating lunch, and receiving medical treatment and check-ups four times a year. Please pray for him as he strives to do well in school and become an engineer.
HFAP Story of Hope:
Kelenica Dolis lives at Hope House in Port-au-Prince Haiti. Hope House is run by the Haiti Foundation Against Poverty and is where a team from RRC will be heading this July.
Kelencia is in the process of being adopted to a family here in West Michigan. This family is very thankful for Kelencia’s sponsors because they provide her with food, water, clothing, shelter and medical care while she lives in Haiti. Kelencia has already been to the states once. She came here on a medical visa because she literally had a hole in her heart. Miraculously, the hole healed itself and Kelencia is doing well under the 24-hour care of the Hope House staff. Praise the Lord for her healing and bright future.
A letter from Prathy:
Dear sponsor, today it is a pleasure for me to write you this letter, and to thank you for everything you do for me.
Dear sponsor, I like the way you are helping us. For the first semester at school I had success. And I can guarantee you, I will get more points for the next semester. Because, I like the way I am working at school. I would like to make you happy and proud because you are helping with school. Thank you. Bye dear sponsor.
