With grateful hearts we bring you a report from a meaningful and festive evening Living Love Ministries recently had.
LLM hosted its first fund-raising banquet at Shady Maple with a focus on raising funds for a new house. 220 people were there. Thanks to those of you that joined us at the banquet and for those of you that weren’t there … here’s a recap of the evening.
As people arrived, they were greeted by Solomon or a Living Love Board member at the registration table. They were given a brochure and a magnet about LLM and an updated picture of Solomon and his family. After entering the banquet room, they enjoyed appetizers, while browsing and shopping at tables covered with many beautiful items made in Kenya.
The wood-burned pictures were made by Solomon’s father
and the beautiful woven baskets by Eunice’s mother and other family members.
The LLM board members covered the evening’s program. Mel Nissley opened with a warm welcome and a prayer. After a delicious meal, Mark Kraybill shared some of the history of LLM. He was followed by a video made by Eric Cressman from footage Solomon brought of the children at the home singing and playing.
Janet Oberholtzer then interviewed Solomon about the home, the children and what he feels God is calling them to in the future. This transitioned into Ron Miller sharing about the finances needed to build the new house. Becky Jones closed the evening with a hopeful prayer.
