April Heifer Update

Happy 75th Anniversary, Heifer International!

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…

And how some of the garden pests turn into butterflies. And how together she…
