FBC Madison raising funds to sponsor “AIDS” orphans in China

April 25, 2010 Journal
The First Baptist Church of Madison will hold its 4th Annual Concert on April 30, 2010 to raise fund to sponsor orphans whose parents died of AIDS in Henan Province of China.

Linda Mintener, the Missionary Partnership Team Coordinator of Judy Sutterlin, shared that “My husband and I visited 32 orphans this summer with Amity staff and IM personnel Judy Sutterlin. What an incredible experience that was! The concert and our talks about our trip has inspired 26 members and friends of our church to decide to each pick one of the orphan children to sponsor for the 2010-2011 school year.  With pledges already in to sponsor 26 of the children, the funds from this year's concert and flute auction, we will be sponsoring even more children. The small annual amount of $220 provides such funds for an elementary or middle high student, and $440 assists a high school student who pays dorm fees.”

If you would like to sponsor an orphaned child, you may contact Linda Mintener at or Benjamin Chan at
