Maria is my hero as she loves unconditionally on children that have been neglected.  She opens her home and arms to a child and also sibling groups to make a difference.  I believe it’s her calling to rock and love on kids in need.  I know that it’s my calling to provide fresh and nutritious food to her home.  We’re honored to serve the network of foster families with Butterfly Haven.  Blessings and Hugs from Miss Jacki

THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS……

This is Pastor Rebekka Smith’s eleven year old grandson Ray’Mon.  About a month ago, she was helping him study for a spelling test and one of the words was encyclopedia.  Ray’Mon was having a hard time trying to spell the word.  He finally asked what is an encyclopedia?  Pastor told him that it was a reference book for all kinds of words.  He replied where can you buy me one?  Pastor explained that it was not one book but a set of very expensive books.  Ray’Mon insisted that he still wanted them.

A few weeks later Pastor received a call to come get treasures from FEED MY PEEPS.  Well among the items were a set of encyclopedias gifted from the law firm of Reinker, Hamilton and Piper, L.L.C.  Jacki said she didn’t know what she was going to do with the set.  Pastor shared her grandson’s wish and the rest is history.  The books will get a lot of use.
