The mission donation for June will go to Inde Creative
Inde Creative is the new recipient of our annual June donation. I learned about Inde Creative from Pastor Jon Coyne. His friend from Mt. Shasta, Bryson Adams, founder of Inde Creative, sent him a book on the Nicaraguan Black Pottery Cooperative that tells the history of black pottery and illustrates the beautiful artistry. This is one of the projects in which Inde Creative worked with local residents, who had a passion for preserving black pottery, to establish a successful business in a poverty-stricken community. Inde Creative will forward our donation to the Black Pottery Cooperative in Nicaragua. Please go to www.nicablackpottery.com/home for more information.

The mission donation for July will go to Holt International Children’s Services
Moved by Christian faith, Holt International seeks a world where every child has the support and resources to reach their full potential — a world where every child has a loving and secure home.
Since Holt International’s founding in 1956, they have worked toward their vision through programs that strengthen and preserve families that are at risk of separation; by providing critical care and support to orphaned and vulnerable children; and by leading the global community in finding families for children who need them and providing the pre- and post-adoption support and resources they need to thrive.
The focus is always on each child’s unique needs — keeping the child's best interest and God-given potential at the forefront of every decision.
