The 4th and last animal to come out of the “Joy to the World” Gift Basket is the Heifer. The Heifer has not always been last. Seventy-five years ago it was the first. Hope was her name and she was shipped to Poland and arrived at the Polish orphanage on Christmas Day, bringing “Hope” and “Joy” to the boys and girls.
Last week we brought “Joy to the World” as our second Gift Basket was donated. It will bring joy to potentially nine families, furnishing them with milk, meat, and wool, with the excess going to market. Then, I’ve been informed that this gift is to be matched by Heifer International. These gifts truly go on and on and on. The LUMM shout out a loud “Thank You!” for your help in bringing “Joy to the World.”
