For Your Information

 


Just returned from the LOVE INC. (Love in the Name of Christ) informational and thank you meeting in Whitehall. This isn’t just another welfare program - it’s helping people transform their lives. Without a doubt, Christ will be the center of this ministry, but the value to those who need help will be life-changing. Volunteers will discover the changes in their own lives, as well. From this meeting some of the information included the variety of ‘needs’ that can be addressed. Tutoring, finances, mechanical help, household help, etc. etc. are just a few. It is really about the people and how to show them Christ’s love. It is being fine-tuned, but will soon be active in the Greater Whitehall Area.

Let’s take a quick trip to the school. Box Tops for Education are still being collected. You can turn them into any of the teachers. The 7th and 8th grades are gearing up for their end of the year trip. On March 24th, they will be hosting a community dance at $3.00 a person. During the dancing there will be a silent labor auction to raise funds for the trip. (Students can be purchased for labor at an excellent price - whatever you bid.) The dance will be for two hours. Seven until nine pm. And of course, it will be in the gym.

Carl and Kelsey Farrand, former Cardwell residents who now live in Bozeman, are parents for the first time. Brance David Farrand arrived Thursday, February 23, 2017 at 6:14 am in Bozeman. His grandparents are David and Martha Farrand of Whitehall and Roger and Carrie Clairmont from Ronan. Bev Carlson is a great grandmother to little Rance. She lives in Polson.

My dear friend, Wanda Munson, whom I have told you about before as ‘miss femininity’ in high school is such an avid football fan today. (I guess you can be feminine and love football.) Anyway, she told me that her Fantasy Football team didn’t do too well this year, but that won’t deter her from next season. She and her husband Russell have a delightful get-away in Lincoln. Since the snow was nearly gone here and the roads were cleared, they decided to head to Lincoln.

The road to their little cabin was so snow packed and the plows didn’t go that direction, they opted to not take the chance of getting isolated and returned home disappointed. Spring is less than a month away!

Questa Edwards lives in Millegan with her husband, Todd, and son, Tommy. She has a job in Belgrade, but is also a Lieutenant Colonel in the military. She has to be deployed for a few weeks each year until she retires. This year, and very soon, she will be heading to Hawaii! We got acquainted because Tommy goes to school at Cardwell.

I John 3:1 says “Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed upon us that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us because it did not know Him.”
