JERUSALEM --- We are pleased to learn that Nicole DelVillano, a freshman at SUNY Platsburgh, and a member of St. Michael's Church in Binghamton has arrived safely in Jerusalem along with most of the 2010 Real Break Jerusalem team members and leaders. Five others who were delayed because of weather issues will arrive, tommorow.
Nicole and her team members are working with Four Homes of Mercy, a charitable organization founded over 60 years ago. Their work is consisting of maintenance, cleaning, cooking as well as interaction with the handicapped children and others at Four Homes of Mercy.
The group is being led by, Fr. Nicholas L. Andruchow, pastor of Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church in Flagstaff, Arizona and His Grace Bishop Savas of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America.
You may follow their journey on Bishop Savas' Blog , the Real Break- Jerusalem-Facebook Page and on Bishop Savas' You Tube Channel.
