Trinity Wesleyan Church to Help Local Resident, and You Can, Too

On September 29, Trinity Wesleyan Church, alongside Wes & April Lynch, are planning a different kind of outreach. The church and a team of volunteers are working on the home of Martha Warvel, who lives in Greenville. Pastor Wes says, “Martha is a widow within our church in Greenville, OH. She lives on a farm with numerous outbuildings and is in need of assistance with upkeep on the exterior of her home. We are honored to be able to bless her through this service project.”

Volunteers will not only be helping this widow, but they will also be raising funds to offset the cost for the Lynch family’s adoption. Wes & April have felt called to adoption for many years, and now that adoption is almost a reality. For more details visit

Both Hands’ mission is “to serve orphans, widows and adoptive families.” Both Hands helps families fundraise for their adoptions. A family gathers a team of volunteers and Both Hands coaches them to coordinate a service project fixing up a widow’s home. The family and their team send letters to raise sponsorship for their day of service. It’s very similar to raising sponsorship for a 5K race, but instead of running, the team is serving a widow. The funds raised help an orphan become adopted into a forever family. Both Hands – one hand for the widow, one hand for the orphan. Committed to fundraising support for its operating expenses through private donors, no funds raised by a family and their team are deducted for Both Hands’ administrative costs.

Since 2008, Both Hands projects have raised over $9,400,000 for adoptions and orphan care. Through 830 Both Hands projects in 42 states, 900 widows have been served, 1,000+ orphans are closer to forever families, and over 20,000 volunteers have served their communities.

Businesses and individuals may join hands with this team by donating supplies for this project. Please contact Pastor Wes at 765-546-1598 for more information.
