Stories of Inspiration

MONEY FOR A LLAMA!

Our Christian Education students of Saint Ann's Episcopal Church of Sayville, NY recently hosted our first Outreach Mission Project. After several weeks of discussing Heifer International in Sunday school, the younger students chose its animal of choice, a llama, as its goal purchase. 

Our Confirmation grade students assembled the chocolate, candy cane sleighs with glue guns and ribbons. Sixty sleighs were made and then sold at the Annual Christmas Fair at Saint Ann's Annual Fair on November 2, 2013 raising a whopping $420 through sales and donations, enough to purchase a llama for its wool, a water pump for fresh water and a goat for nutritional milk. 

Special thanks to our parishioner who donated all the candy, the Sunday school teachers and children who manned the fair table, and our community for their support.

"I Was Hungry and You Fed Me"

As we have done the past eleven years, Holy Spirit used the Lenten and Easter seasons to raise money and awareness of world hunger by donating money to Heifer International for the purchase of an "Ark." During this period of time, the parishioners of Holy Spirit have contributed over $65,000 in support of projects, activities, and programs sponsored by Heifer International.

Parishioners were encouraged to donate the money they would have otherwise spent based on their Lenten sacrifice. If someone gave up coffee for Lent, we suggested they take the money they would have spent and donate it to Heifer. In addition, our Christian Formation Program (religious education for our school-aged children) held their second annual end of year carnival and contributed over $1,800 of the total listed above.

On behalf of the parishioners at Holy Spirit, I would like to thank you for your continued efforts in alleviating world hunger and of truly living the Gospel message "I was hungry and you fed me."

May God continue to bless your work and the ministry of Heifer International.

Peace,

Deacon Rich Akins
