Love Packages Update!

Testimony from Kenya, Africa--

Firstly, I would like to thank you for the Sunday school materials you have provided for us, we highly appreciate. Initially we used to combine all the kids of all ages together in one room, but now we have learned by the help of the books to separate them in different grades. So far, so good, the kids have acquired a lot of knowledge by the help of the books. May God bless you immensely.

The Amazing Grace Race

The youth program at Grace United Methodist Church in Perrysburg, Ohio has organized this race to benefit Cassie Paige; a 12-year old girl who is preparing for a kidney transplant in the next 3-6 months.

With frequent hospital visits to Ann Arbor for dialysis treatments, medical bills and the cost of gas to cover the visits is overwhelming.

We are hoping that the funds raised through this event will help to alleviate the financial burden of Cassie's medical treatment and the price of gas to travel to and from the hospital.

The race will be held at Grace United Methodist Church in Perrysburg, Ohio circling a nearby trail before finishing at Grace Church. For information regarding either business or individual sponsorship, please feel free to contact Cincy Krock at cindy@gracechurchperrysburg.com or Tiffany Howard at tiffany@gracechurchperrysburg.com.


Badlin Organ Free To A Good Home

We have a very nice Baldwin organ for sale. I'm not positive on the year
 but think mid 90's maybe. It is in excellent shape, my father played everyday for enjoyment. In his younger years he owned the Baldwin piano and organ store in downtown Toledo so he knew his organs, he has since passed away and we would just like to find it a nice home, he loved his organ.  

For more information, please contact Liz Hodges at 419.283.2984 or at ggllhodges@bex.net.
