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.
