Church congregation raises funds to keep local fisher folk safe

The Rev. Gene Raymer and several members of The Little Chapel by the Lake traveled to the village of San Juan Tecomatlan on May 6 to distribute 20 life jackets to 17 fishermen and three fisherwomen. Missionary Dr. Daniel Boatright was the interpreter for the donation ceremony, which took place in the town plaza.

The village has been the main mission of The Little Chapel for over 25 years. Once a month beans, rice and household necessities are distributed to the poorest of the village’s poor, along with clothing and other items from “The Blue Box” donation container in the church parking area.
