Orchard Hill Church tries to enact a wholistic approach to ministry through the leadership of JeanJean and Kristie Mompremier, our local Haitian partners. When Kristie asked for new dresses for young girls in their community, the creative minds at Orchard set out to sew pillowcase dresses.
These dresses provide much-needed clothing for the girls, but Orchard hopes they also add one more layer of protection in their everyday life.
“By providing a new dress, you may well be changing a young girl’s destiny.” Dress a Girl Around the World continues by explaining, “Village pastors tell us that a girl wearing a new dress presents an appearance that she is well cared for and may discourage would-be predators.”
The people of Orchard Hill Church are called to serve like Jesus, by caring for the whole person – mind, body, and soul.
Join us in this effort to clothe and protect the lovely girls in Haiti by ironing, cutting, sewing, offering new pillowcases, or donating $5 to pay for a dress. Orchard also scheduled three sewing events. To sign up or receive more information, stop by the Event Desk or contact Kara Vander Wiel (email@example.com).
