Thank you and congratulations!  
The HARP Mission (Helping Appalachian Rural People) requested help collecting school supplies to be sent to the fourth poorest county in the United States--Inez, KY.  With your help, we were able to send hundreds and hundreds (including 430 binders) of supplies to those children.  Pastor Gary Richard of Hosanna Lutheran Church, along with Dave Kauker of HARP delivered those supplies on Friday, August 30, 2013, and their reception was heartwarming.  People there immediately got to work dividing the supplies between their buildings and were just thrilled with what we were able to provide.  Churches involved were St. John (Elyria), Faith (Avon), Bethany (Wellington), Shepherd of the Ridge (North Ridgeville), Hope (Sheffield), Zion (Lorain), St. Paul (Valley City), and Hosanna (Columbia Station).
