We wanted to thank everyone who attended our fundraiser. It went well and everyone enjoyed themselves. The setting was our daughter-in-laws parent's pond. The same pond where Dustin and Melissa held their wedding almost a year ago. We really appreciate Robert and Debbie allowing us to hold our fundraiser at their pond. We also wanted to remind those of you that were not able to come, that you can still donate online or by mailing in a check. One of the main focuses of the fundraiser this year is to HELP the church in Pass Rien build a church building to meet in. We would like to supply the materials and have the community supply the labor. The day we broke ground for the church in Pass Rien we had over 100 helpers from the community. The family living next door to the property, whom we bought the property from, volunteered one of the 4 rooms in their home to store 100 bags of cement each weighing 95 lbs. This self sacrificing offer is a great picture of the church body in Pass Rien. They are still holding church nightly and are so hungry for God. They are so giving and serving. We would really love to bless them.
And by the way, I really am so thankful for all of you who have been praying for our family as Mike is away in the US.
