North Carolina Chapter
North Carolina is the founding Chapter of Widow’s Mite Experience and has been in existence for 11 years. Some of our members have had the privilege of going to India, Peru, Africa, Costa Rico, Guatemala, the Philippines, and China to dedicate wells and meet the people and their pastors that those wells serve. All of these trips have been financed by individual members, as to not take any funds away from our mission. We are truly Blessed. Each of us are volunteers at Widow’s Mite Experience.
