The Winborn Chapel United Methodist Church is telling the story about their 2016 mission to Jardin de Amor Elementary School in Santa Maria de Jesus near Antigua, Guatemala.  The school is the sole source of education for Mayan children whose families live in poverty.

These children would be unable to attend school if not for Jardin de Amor which is supported entirely through volunteer donations. Winborn Chapel adopted the school in 2006 and has supported the school through the purchase of school supplies, cleaning supplies, construction work and supplies, and faculty/staff salary every year since. 

Winborn Chapel, a historic United Methodist Church in southern Greene County, Mississippi, raises funds to support the school and other foreign mission projects by hosting a ribeye steak dinner. This happens at the church every October and February. The dinners sell for $20 per plate for a 12 ounce grilled ribeye, baked potato, salad, bread, and dessert, dine in or carry out.

The next Steak Dinner for Missions is Saturday, Oct. 15, 2016, at 6 p.m. To reserve one or more dinners, call Danny Box at 601-543-3266, or Pastor James Hall at 228-297-7751 or   You can contact the church as well to make donations.
