Thank You for Cookie Sale Combatting World Hunger

posted by Lois Kerchner

Thank you so very much for your support again this year of the Cookie Sale to Combat World Hunger. I am sure those who received the trays as gifts were delighted and hopefully you had a chance to enjoy some of the cookies yourself and perhaps even share with Santa.

 Including donations, we “sold” the equivalent of 71 trays of cookies. This will provide 26,625 meals to children in Haiti. The trays we did not sell were donated to our church to distribute to organizations of our choice. After numerous calls to places unable to use these cookie trays, Garden Spot Village gratefully accepted them to give to residents who can no longer bake or are without family nearby. As the thank you note from Garden Spot Village reads, “You made their day!”

 Again, Thank You for your support of this cookie sale.

When we gather, we will share our experiences from the week. If you would like to join us, please let Joyce Hall know as soon as possible so that you can have your book to prepare the first session.

HOINA Visitors - Darlene Large and Glory Janes

posted Nov 4, 2019, 6:18 PM by Lois Kerchner

It was wonderful to have two visitors from the HOINA school in India.  Darlene Large, founder of this school for children, and Glory Janes, who is to take over as Director for this school, were able to worship with us this morning. We've been involved with the HOINA school as one of our mission projects for many years, and it's always great to have Darlene visit us. She is truly a remarkable woman with a remarkable story.
