Thanks to all who helped support the 30-Hour Famine, which concluded last night. Owen and Ben fasted for 30 hours and spent Friday and Saturday raising awareness (including their own) of the world’s hungry and the ultimate solution in the Bread of Life. Our weekend theme was the seven I AMs of Jesus.

“On behalf of the Eden North Collins Food Pantry, I would like to thank you for your generous donation of $236. It is because of the continuous support of individuals and organizations like yours that we are able to operate. We serve five local communities and have more than 130 families that participate.”  --Mary Granger, Secretary

It is with sad hearts that we say goodbye to the Kowal family who are making their formal move to Westfield this week. But don’t worry, they assure us they will be back to visit!  In the meantime you can keep in touch by sending notes to their North Collins PO Box 942, calling 352-5576 or dropping by their Westfield home, 9094 Rt. 5. Julie will let us know when they set-up their Westfield postal address.  Go with God dear friends. You will be missed!
