The West Erwin Church of Christ is truly involved in WORLD evangelism, thanks to the congregation’s support, prayers, and financial commitment. Please view the links below to learn more about specific mission works. Approximately 20% of our budget is dedicated to these efforts.
Benin, West Africa |
We help to support a school that is dedicated to training native preachers and evangelists for Benin and several of the nearby nations.
Nigeria, Africa
We provide some personal support for two native preachers in Nigeria. The Westside Church of Christ in Norman, OK oversees this work. Doug Wheeler visits annually to encourage and provide items needed by the churches in the area.
Biblical Institute of Central America |
Schools of evangelism in Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua are very active and successful in proclaiming the Gospel in those and other Central America countries. We support each of the schools and provide some of the personal income for George Hall, Executive Director.
Casa Hogar Children’s Home, Neuva Rosita, Mexico
This is an outreach effort of the Church of Christ in Neuva Rosita. We have assisted with this work for many years.
Children’s Bible Study |
Although this started as a web site for teaching children about the Bible, it has expanded to include lessons for teens and adults. Animation, videos and other techniques are used to present exciting lessons. Materials are also provided to assist Bible class teachers. We provide support for Charles Valentine and an assistant. Charles, aka Uncle Noah, developed the site. It reaches around the world.
India-Russel Bell
Russel Bell, under the oversight of the LaPoyner Church of Christ, Larue, TX, has been involved in evangelism in India for over 34 years. In addition to preaching and teaching there, he raises funds to provide Bibles, song books, and many other things to assist the churches he visits. West Erwin has been assisting that work for a number of years. We also assist with Russel’s personal support.
Sister Partricia Orphanage, Draksharama, India
This facility was named after Russel Bell’s late wife. We provide monthly support to help care for the nearly 100 children in the orphanage.
Eastern European Missions |
EEM has provided Bibles and Bible related materials to Russia, Ukraine, and other Eastern European countries for decades. They are able to place Bibles into public schools, as well as to provide them to thousands of individuals who are seeking to know God. West Erwin provides monthly support for this work as well as special contribution funds for their “Million Dollar Sunday” efforts.
World Bible School |
Several members at West Erwin, past and present, have been involved in this effort. We are expecting to make this a local evangelism tool as well as a mission outreach.
World Radio |
Utilizing native preachers, World Radio broadcasts the Gospel in many countries. They also are involved in providing aid when natural disasters strike. West Erwin is a partner in this tremendous work.
Chimala Mission and Hospital
A number of the West Erwin women are involved in making diaper shirts for newborn babies, as well as bandages and lab coats for hospital use. These items are shipped on a regular basis to the Chimala Mission and Hospital. At any time, about a dozen of our ladies are involved in this work. In 2014, over 3100 bandages, 600 diaper shirts and 14 lab coats have been provided.
