Jubilee Church members are reaching out.
Rochelle Newell is looking forward to her next trip to Africa. Where she's been helping orphans at a children's home in Liberia.
"They have nothing. So, anything we can come up with helps them tremendously. For us Canadians, even here in Kenora and our little small church of Jubilee, we have so much," she said.
The home is named after the late Linda Miclash. with a wing in the orphanage dedicated to the memory of Rochelle's late husband, Tom Newell. As an engineer, he helped develop the Canadarm, before dedicating himself to serving others.
Along with his work in Liberia, Newell also served as chaplain at the Kenora Jail.
Richard Goodfellow says their inner-city congregation is raising money, so their pastor -- Frank Kowal -- can help the less fortunate in Africa.
"He won't ask for anything. So, when we seen him come back from the last couple of trips that he's made out there, it's so dear to his heart now, and I know it's expensive. It's $4,000 for him to make that trip there, and he'll take it out of his own pocket to make that trip," said Goodfellow.
A sale is planned for Jubilee between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday. Jubilee is located in the old Knights of Columbus Hall in downtown Kenora.
