A couple times a year I just give in, take migraine meds and eat a big bite of Hershey's. Mmmmm. Consequences will follow.

A desperate need right now!

My dear friends, Charlotte and Roy Wingard, inner city missionaries in Jackson, are in desperate need of some financial support right now. Due to the economy, they have lost some of their support and are really in a bind. Please consider helping. They do an incredible work with people that many of us wouldn't let near us! My family has worked with them for many years and continue to be amazed at how God uses them.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions! You can copy and paste the link below to see the note from Charlotte. The second link is to their website just in case you don't have facebook.
