Actions speak louder than words

January’s “Thank You” notes; I wanted to thank you for allowing me to use your facility for Lois Griswold’s “90th” Birthday party. You were so trusting and giving even though I’m not a member of your church. Frank Cammarata was so helpful and sweet to make sure everything was just how I wanted it.

Heifer Update – December 2018

December 4, 2017 – the day the Lakeview United Methodist Men sent in the first donation to Heifer International. We sent a check of $120 to donate 6 flocks of chicks. We remember doing the math, “passing the gift” and the eventual possibility of “9X” the impact we could help lift 54 families out of poverty and hunger. Since that day the Methodist Men have sent over $15,000 in donations of animals and services for the poor and hungry around…

Gift Of A Healthy Home

Heifer Project I just finished painting my closet yesterday. Many of the recipients of our gifts thru Heifer International would probably ask “What is a closet?” God’s poorest and hungriest families would love to have living conditions as clean as a newly painted closet. Well, as always, help is on the way. One donor this past month specified giving two gifts of a “Healthy Home.” Families are given the opportunity to earn the income they need to improve their living…
