Estes Echo

Widlord Thomas – new missionary to Haiti

Several years ago, Widlord Thomas, one of Roberta Edwards’ first kids in Sonlight Children’s Home in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, traveled to Freed-Hardeman University to study the Bible. After his graduation in December, he will return to Haiti to preach and teach the gospel and the Estes Church of Christ will provide oversight.

On Sunday morning, December 7, the Estes elders will formally commission Widlord to his mission and on Sunday night, following a concert by FHU Chorale, the Estes congregation will host a finger foods fellowship in his honor to show our appreciation and encouragement. We hope you will join us. If you are interested in helping to sponsor Widlord as he returns to Haiti or interested in sponsoring our on-going mission to feed and educate Haitian school children, visit our website at or contact us at
