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…

Heifer Update – Growing Seedlings

Growing Seedlings If you ask, 5-year-old Florinda Ruiz Lopez will tell you all about how to plant a seed and water it. “Then, when you’ve finished with the water, when you look at the plant, it grows really fast, but it’s really little.” And, as she talks faster and faster, she’ll tell you about the grasshoppers and locusts that eat the leaves of the gourd plants. And how some of the garden pests turn into butterflies. And how together she…

Heifer Update – Nov. 3, 2018

GARDEN AND GOAT Sharada Devi, 48 years old and a mother of eight children, felt lost and alone in her home village of Tarwara in the state of Bihar.

Lakeview United Methodist Men Heifer Report

LUMM Heifer Project September was a special month for our mission. We had 2 individual gifts of $275 each, which specified we send a girl to school.

Then came the announcement from Heifer International that all our gifts would be doubled. Praise God! Now…

We now have $100 of the $275 needed to make the school bell ring again. Following is another success story from Cambodia showing us that pigs are a viable animal to help feed…

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…

“Fill the Ark” Again

“Fill the Ark” Now that was exciting, seeing Noah deliver the “Fill the Ark” banks to the Altar! The summary of his voyage will be reported in next week’s bulletin. The banks have been removed from the Chapel and Worship Center. When gathering them, I noticed that there was NO expiration date on them. I really don’t want to recycle them until they have been used at least one time. So, I invite each of you to take one home,…
