Congratulations Church!! – What an outstanding effort you have put forth for Days for Girls ($552) and Raise the Roof Orphanage Project ($150). Good Job. What does it mean? It means that you have kept 26 girls in school for 3 years. You have also contributed 3 sheets of tin roofing (with a matching 3) of the 80 sheets needed to complete the roof to house orphans. What a blessing! This effort will continue through the month of April. Give generously.
