completed project: car repair
Patricia is a young mom of three. She owns a 1988 Chevy S-10 pickup that is leaking transmission fluid. This case may not be the easiest to solve, but Patricia must have help! She has to take her daughter to Kansas City each week for cancer treatments and must have reliable transportation. This is a fantastic opportunity to show the love of Christ. She came to us asking for help. And now we're asking you. Will you help? Update: From Carthage comes a rescue! A mechanic from B.Y.K.O.T.A. Church is truly being kind to another
completed project: lawn mowing job
Ofelia is a 64 year old lady recently widowed. She needs help this summer with a lawn mowing job. We would love it if a small group might adopt her for the summer like one church place did for Mary (see below). Please consider this wonderful way to minister to a sweet lady in need. God tells us clearly that this is your job, church!
Update: Way to go Christ's Church of Oronogo! Hats off to a great youth group who adopted Ofelia for the summer!
