Progress Report

So much is happening in My Neighbor's Ministries; it's time for an update!

My Neighbor's HEALTH

What would you do if you were offered an empty state-of-the-art hospital on the Caribbean Island of Antigua?! Well, if you are part of the leadership team of Zarephath Health Center, whose purpose is to meet the medical needs of the uninsured and poor, you'd thank God for this incredible opportunity! Read more about it at: http://www.mountsaintjohns.org

The "Health Club" at Zarephath launched its monthly gathering with a focus on the "Components of Total Health." The next meeting will be Monday, June 12, 7:00-9:00 pm in the Main Building Reception Room at Zarephath. Topic: "Nutrition: What's Food Got to do With It?"

My Neighbor's GARDEN

The workday was a great success! Hard-working volunteers cleared and planted deer-resistant perennials along the north fence border, cleared the first garden bed and installed an arbor entrance. Also complete is the installation of 5 semi-dwarf apple trees, 2 bush cherries and 3 red raspberries. In the works is the transplanting of an evergreen privacy barrier as well as a waterline out to the Garden. If you're interested in learning to double-dig, I've got four rows completed and plenty to go ... grab a shovel and come on over! More information: Deb Cruver at dcruver@pillar.org.

Work Team's trip to DESIRE STREET

Our 5-person team came back with wonderful stories and pictures, telling us about their experience serving in hurricane-ripped New Orleans. They're presently working on their own blogsite. I'll update you when that is complete so you can find out more about what they did and their upcoming return trip this summer. Thank you for your gifts and prayers! They accomplished much, but there is so much more that needs to be done!!

Progress continues on all fronts, including My Neighbor's HOME, My Neighbor's PANTRY and My Neighbor's CLOSET. Keep checking back for more details as these ministries continue to grow.
