PET MO-Columbia Update 4/29/13

Goal to date: 612 Actual to date: 626

*** The big news is that with a recent shipment of PETs to Samoa, via Hope
Haven International, PETs have now been placed in 100 countries. See
attached current list. When I was on the board of Habitat International and
Habitat entered a new country, Millard Fuller always danced on the table at
the first following board meeting. Gary, let that be a lesson for you!

*** Here at PET we emphasize the meeting of the needs of the poor, marginalized, disenfranchised and overlooked. Last week we received a very generous check form the Community of Christ congregation in CO, which came because someone here in Columbia told them about PET. A man there wrote:

“This is the essence of the Gospel–like Zion, everyone working together on
a project to help the less fortunate. You tapped into a need people have and
gave them an opportunity to give.”

He is recognizing the need we all have to give, to share, to care.

*** PET MO Columbia is looking for the special skill of sewing a vinyl
seat so a foam cushion can be inserted. 35 a week is planned. Contact
shop 573-886-7877 if you have a business, home or idea where we can get
these built.
