Thanks From Team Wellshire 

Team Wellshire at the Elephant Rock Cycling Festival in 2016A big thank you to the congregation for supporting Team Wellshire and, through it, the orphans at the Heather Chimhoga Orphan Center in rural Murewea, Zimbabwe.  On June 5, 29 Team Wellshire riders completed a total of 1,634 miles in the Elephant Rock Cycling Festival in Castle Rock as a part of Team Zimbabwe. Because of their participation and the generous financial contributions from Wellshire members and friends, $12,850 was garnered for the Denver Presbytery-wide Zimbabwe Mission Partnership, of which Wellshire is a partner church.  This amount is about 107% of our $12,000 goal! Overall, the donations to Team Zimbabwe raise almost half of the annual budget for the orphan center, which provides for the daily care for 1,000 orphans.
