Loving Others and Doing God's Work

Mission and Care

Sometimes our mission projects involve donations to organizations such as Heifer International, where their impact is felt in faraway locations. Yesterday, however, our committee was able to hand deliver our donation of $800 plus bedding to the Oak Forest chapter of Sleep in Heavenly Peace. Chapter President Dave King works out of his home to organize volunteers who build beds and deliver them to children in the surrounding area who have no bed of their own. Dave told us that his chapter has built about 200 beds so far, which are delivered to applicants who might have been the victims of a flood, a fire, poverty, or domestic violence. We were invited to accompany Dave and his volunteers on a bed delivery in the near future.

Thank you for your generous donations to Sleep in Heavenly Peace, and please be ready with your donations in October and November which will benefit the Pediatric Oncology Treasure Chest Foundation. As always, remember that together, we can do great things with the help of God.
