Angel House Orphanage & Secondary School
Last January a group of people and a mission that you supported traveled to Tanzania to supply, build and train others how to use a greenhouse. Through your generous financial support and prayers the greenhouse is off to a great start. Well done good and faithful servants. Here is an article from the March edition of the Angel House Newsletter with some follow up pictures.
If you would like more information on the work at the orphanages, see http://grassrootsangelhouse.org or like their Facebook Page.
Prime Timers Respite Care
A windfall is about to make its debut in Hamilton at the Youth Building of FirstUnited Methodist Church (FUMC), corner Taylor and Henry Streets in Hamilton. You might even be a candidate for this new service:
Volunteers will offer six hours of supervised group activity and lunch for guests (injured or disabled people who require assistance) on Tuesdays from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. FUMC is initiating a center-based respite care program to start on Tuesday July 24.and every Tuesday thereafter. Respite care is a short-term break for family caregivers of the sick, elderly, or disabled, but does not include medical care.
“Prime Timers,” will provide respite time for family members having full-time 24-hour-a-day responsibility to care for family members needing assistance. The Prime Timers Program is open to all; however, pre-registration is required before caregivers can participate.
Registration forms are available at the office of the First United Methodist Church or by contacting Michael Langford (254)386-1296 or texting, or e-mailing to email@example.com.
People interested in volunteering are also welcome to contact us. We will not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, age, national origin, religion, disability, sexual orientation or any other protected category.
Our United Methodist Men are touching the lives of hungry children by loading more than 40 backpacks with food each week for Hamilton Independent School District students. The school identifies students who would be without food over the weekend, when school breakfasts and lunches are not available. The Tarrant County Food Bank supplies non-perishable food, but a local organization must agree to sponsor the program and fill the backpacks. Our UMM has agreed to serve as sponsor. The men fill the backpacks at their breakfast meeting each Thursday and deliver them to the school, where Robin Anglin, teacher and FUMC member, receives them. The children return the backpacks to be loaded again. The United Methodist Men meet at 8 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall and welcome other men to join them.
