Zion of Amor Provides More Than Just a Home For Cicelin Henry

 In From the Blog

This year the group from Zion Lutheran Church of Amor, Battle Lake, MN, challenged each other and their congregation to raise enough money to build a house in Jamaica.  After meeting Cicelin Henry, they took on this challenge and more……….

Cicelin was living in Falmouth in a house that flooded easily and was not adequate for her needs.  As a result of being in an accident in which her daughter was killed, Cicelin was paralyzed from the waist down.  She was not able to use a wheelchair in her house so her neighbors and granddaughter had to carry her from a chair to her bed.

She spent her days in bed waiting for someone to help her.  Delzi Murray brought our group to meet her, a couple at a time, and we found a deep motivation for building her home.  Cicelin had great support from her neighbors during our time there because she was so beloved in the community.  She had been like a mother to many young people t here and they turned out to help build her new home.  Mission Jamaica was able to get her a new wheelchair and we raised money for medical expenses as well.  We are honored to have been a part of this experience and wish Cicelin God’s richest blessings in her new home!
