From the Friends of Barnabas Email
The Barnabas Benefit is right around the corner. Come join the FOB staff and Board as we celebrate all that is Friends of Barnabas and raise funds for our preventative health education that truly saves lives! Enjoy dinner, music, and entertainment as well as an auction including weekend getaways, jewelry, and paintings from our very own Danilo Muñoz.
We will be honoring long time Friends of Barnabas volunteer, “Papa” Joe Covolo with the first annual Don Pierce Volunteer of the Year Award. Papa Joe has made over 40 trips to Honduras serving as a Team Leader for many Mountain Medical Teams. He and his wife Jackie have spent countless hours packing medical supplies for our teams and to this day, Papa Joe continues to support the FOB office, making name tags for our volunteers and running errands for our staff.
Trinity UMC will be the recipient of the Linwood Cook Church of Distinction in Missions Award. This award recognizes a commitment to FOB’s mission, team sponsorship, team member participation, congregational support, and longevity with Friends of Barnabas. Since FOB’s founding in 2000, 300 volunteers have traveled to Honduras on Trinity Mountain Medical Teams. The congregation has also partnered with the community of Santa Ana for the last two years. Trinity UMC has demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to the children of Honduras and we are pleased to recognize them with this award.
Please join us at the Barnabas Benefit as we express our gratitude for those who make us who we are and help us serve so many.
