Stesha Missikewitz participates in the ‘Paint Nite’ fundraiser at the Stettler Alliance Church on Thursday evening

‘Paint Nite’ event fundraises for Guatemala Mission Trip

With 60 people attending, the event raised a total of $900.

The Stettler Alliance Church was busy on Thursday, March 16 as Stettler and area community came together once again to raise funds and participate in a “Paint Nite” evening, putting their painting skills to test for an Albertan sunset.

With 60 people attending, the event raised a total of $900 according to Claire Steward, who organized the event on behalf of her team.

“My husband and I are both adult chaperones going on the trip,” Stewart said. “I’ve had no prior experience with ‘Paint Nite’ but we believe that the night went well and we had a lot of positive feedback from people who came.”

Stewart said that her husband and herself are “both looking forward to being the hands and feet of Jesus in our community and abroad in Guatemala.”

A week back on March 9, a fire had swept through a dormitory at a children’s home in Guatemala City in Guatemala, where 35 girls had been killed because they had been unable to escape.

“The fire was tragic and we continue to pray for those affected,” Stewart said.
