A lot has happened since my last update. Many generous donations have been received from you, the congregation of the Lakeview United Methodist Church. Here is the summary of those donations.
- In February you donated 13 Gifts of Honeybees, a Flock of Hope, a Pig and sent 3 Girls to School.
- In March you donated 5 Gifts of Honeybees and 2 Flocks of Chicks. Then Heifer International “Passed the Gift.” They doubled the donation of 3 Gifts of Honeybees, giving us a total of 22 Hives of Bees for our project “The Buzz.”
- At the LUMM meeting on April 6th, it was approved to donate a Gift of Clean Water, 2 Hope Baskets, a Gift of Honeybees and a Flock of Chicks.
What a joy it is for all of us to serve Christ by directly helping people in need. The animals and the training in their care allows families to start their own businesses selling eggs, cheese, milk, honey and more. With that help, these families will start earning a steady income, put food on the table and send their kids to school.
“Changing Lives,” yes, even “Saving Them.”
