The Mission groups will be selling Heart for Africa Ornaments made by the Khutsala Artisans of Swaziland.
Ornaments available are the Snowy Star, Red Bell, Multi-colored Tree, Purple Ornament, and Snowy White Angel.
Each ornament sells for $20.00
Khutsala Artisans is a HFA initiative designed to provide training and FAIR TRADE employment to local Swazi people. They currently employ 100+ Swazi women and men, training them in the art of jewelry making, bead craft, pottery and woodworking.
In a country where the unemployment rate can reach 70% their desire is to provide HOPE and help the people of this nation break the cycle of poverty and provide for their families. $12.00 of each ornament sold goes to the care and education of the orphaned and vulnerable children that HFA has rescued and now live at Project Canaan.
The profit from every 25 ornaments sold provides one orphan with food, shelter, care, education, and love for an entire month.
The remaining $8.00 of each ornament sold will help defray the cost of our Middle School and Adult Mission Trips scheduled for June 2018.
The ornaments make great gifts for teachers, secret santa gifts, friends and family!

2018 Dominican Republic Adult Mission Trip is scheduled for the week of June 2nd – June 9th, 2018.
Organized by Cross Catholic we will depart from O’Hare Airport and arrive in Santo Domingo with a transfer in Miami.
We will be either building a home for a family or working on safe water ways for the town. This will depend on which is the greatest need at the time of our arrival.
Cost of the trip is $650 + Airfare $625 which is about $1300 per person. The $650 includes transportation, lodging and meals once we arrive in the DR. We will be doing fundraising to help offset some of the cost. Our main goal of fundraising is to raise the funds for our project for this trip and possible future trips.
