March Heifer Update

LUMM Heifer Project Update Here it is March, 2019 and things are a-buzz or they soon will be. The Lakeview United Methodist Men have shifted their attention to the smallest gift on the Heifer International list – the honeybee, but what a powerful one it is. Aside from the honey that we have all enjoyed, there are seven other by products you may be familiar with. Bee pollen, bee wax, royal jelly, propolis, organic honey, mead, and bee bread. In…

Heifer Update – Feb. 23, 2019

Heifer Update Do you ever wonder what your donation is doing or has done? A donation to Heifer International is such a blessing to many. Because of your gifts to Heifer, you are giving families the help they need to become truly self-reliant. You’re changing lives. Let’s meet Lazarus Mtika of Malawi. He is well known for his big toothy smile. His first given name was Harrison, but was changed in the hospital to Lazarus. He was badly burned when…

Heifer Update for Feb. 16th

Heifer Update Another Bee Question: On average, how much honey does one bee produce in a lifetime? A) 1/2 teaspoon B) 1/12 teaspoon C) 1 teaspoon Scroll down for answer The school bell has been silent for about 4 weeks now. Does that mean we finished our mission? No!

February Heifer Update

LUMM Heifer Project The Christmas season (the season of giving and receiving gifts) is over. Or is it? I don’t think it is. Should we stop then? I don’t think so. Jesus didn’t stop, and never will. His gift of love is never ending and this congregation didn’t stop giving either. The LUMM just sent in the past month’s donations. The list is lengthy and wonderful. Because of you, we sent our 11th girl to school. You also donated the…

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…
