SUBMITTED by Linda Werts, Park Presbyterian Church (27-Dec-2010)

BUEN PROVECHO! Our annual "Mexican Night Supper" mission fundraiser is planned for Thursday, January 13th at Park Presbyterian Church. The public is invited to a delicious Mexican meal, fellowship and information about Park's partnership projects with Presbyterian churches in the Yucatan, Mexico. A small "marketplace" will offer handicrafts from Mexico and our own "Mary's Necklaces" for sale.

The meal will be served from 5-7pm and offer cheese enchiladas, Mexican rice, Mayan salad, tres leches cake or Mexican Sundaes for dessert and beverage. Tickets ($8 adults, $3 students, 4 and under free) are on sale now at the church office 331-2255, parkchurch110@gmail.com or at the door.

A "team" from Park Presbyterian Church, including Tracy Clingerman, Jeanne and Paul Salisbury, and Linda and Kurt Werts from Park Church and Barb and Bill Smith from Pittsford Presbyterian, and former members of Park has been working for a year with Living Waters for the World to install a simple, affordable and sustainable water filtration system in the village of Cedralito, Mexico, population 286. The facility will be housed at the Presbyterian mission church "Monte Horeb" and provide free potable water to the elementary school, the tele-secundario high school, and the health clinic. Water will be sold to community residents in 40 gal. "garrafons" at about half the cost of bottled water presently available. Our Installation Trip is scheduled for May 2011.

This has been a major mission outreach for Park's Mission Committee. Cost for the reverse osmosis purification system is nearly $15,000. Tuition for team members at Living Waters University is $500 plus transportation per member. Trips to Mexico over a 3-year period, with health and hygiene curriculum materials, increase the cost of this project to approximately $25,000. We have met our goal with the help and support of church members, the Newark Community, and churches and individuals in our Presbytery and Synod! And to all of you we say "gracias" with heartfelt thanks.

Some of the LWW Team members, along with Pastor J Christy Wareham and Tracy Clingerman's daughter Chloe Pieters, are traveling with the Geneva Presbytery's annual Mission Trip in February. We will have an opportunity to help with the construction of the building to house the Living Waters System. We will also join our brothers and sisters of "Monte Horeb" church in fellowship and worship. As well, we will spend time with our partners of faith in the community of Limones. The time we spend with our Presbyterian brothers and sisters in Mexico refreshes our faith and rewards us with enduring friendships.

Proceeds from this year's supper will support the mission work we do and the partnerships we have formed in the Presbytery of the Caribe, one of the Presbyteries in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico.

Our mission is "Clean Water for All God's Children." You can help us through prayer support, participation in our fundraisers, or by monetary or in kind donations or pledges. Further information is available, 331-2255 or parkchurch110@gmail.com. For information about LIving Waters: www.livingwatersfortheworld.org.
