Friends of Family Hope, I met a group of Mennonites who drove from Ohio and PA to come and give a helping hand to Simonton. One man, a dairy farmer, left his five children at home with the oldest who is in charge at age 23 years old, and came with his wife to help people clean out their flooded homes. What a heart of serving! As one person said tonight, "In disaster relief, there is no competition."
...Churches: We have four days next week for dinners...Monday -- Thursday. Would a church take an one evening to serve the meal? (Meals prepared by Lord Send Me Ministries.)
...Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday (June 13-15), County Social Services will begin taking information for Financial Assistance. You need to meet with a case worker to begin the process. 10am -- 4pm at Simonton Church.

"When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me.'" ...Erma Bombeck.
As one person said, "These volunteers are so amazing!" Thanks!
