Just Plodding Along

"Great opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us daily." ~ Sally Koch

Our fourth meeting was held today at Lynn R's home. We continued working on items for the school kits going to Afghanistan.

We learned about Village of Hope, a non-profit organization that is helping a village in southern Ethiopia. Briana Whatcott, of Payson, has organized a fashion show on April 23 at 7:00 p.m. at Payson High to raise funds for Village of Hope. Briana was adopted eleven years ago from this small village and is now reaching out to help others who still live there. Village of Hope has a comprehensive plan and is building a strong foundation in the village, helping the people there be self-sustaining. One of the most impressive aspects of the program is that people in the village are already reaching out, serving and helping others.
