Here at Naples OPC in Naples, Florida,  we are hosting a short-term mission team from New Hope OPC (Green Bay, Wisconsin) this week.  Associate Pastor Paul Mourreale and the group from Green Bay arrived in two vans on Saturday evening and will be here until Friday morning.  They will canvass neighborhoods for us and do service projects, including a day of service at St. Matthew's House (a faith-based non-profit ministry to the homeless and those in addiction recovery).  Our church has its office space at St. Matthew's, and it is through St. Matthew's that I have access to the inmates at the jail for ministry.  We are so encouraged to welcome the team from Green Bay!
