Who are the others that these 4s are for?
This year your participation will benefit one local and one international cause.
Local: Lawrence Interdenominational Nutrition Kitchen. LINK has been in existence since 1985 providing nutritious home-cooked meals to families and individuals in our community at no cost to them and with no questions asked. A growing number of families with young children are coming to LINK. LINK has no regular funding sources so they depend on the generous donations of others.
International: Pioneers. Kelly and Darrin Monroe, active members of the Lawrence Free Methodist Church, have felt God calling them to be cross-cultural missionaries and have taken many steps to confirm that call. In January 2013 they accepted a position with Pioneers, a mission agency that mobilizes teams to glorify God among people groups around the world who haven';t heard of Jesus. Our support will help the Monroes get abroad so they can do what God is calling them to do.
