The Stop Hunger Now organization provides the school with the food stuffs and packaging equipment. The students provide the labor and the cost of the raw goods. It is estimated that each student will assemble 250 meals and each meal costs $0.29.
Students are seeking pledges to help pay for the meals they pack. ALL money that Tabby raises will be used for the Stop Hunger Now project. Plus, for all the money she raises, she will get credits towards the cost of her Senior Service Practicum. This is a missions trip that the senior class goes on to Costa Rica.
If you would like to help sponsor Tabby's participation in Stop Hunger Now, you can make a tax deductible payment online on her school giving page at: http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/tabby-hollowell/2016SHN Every dollar helps!
|Yesterday Tabby got braces! A very special gift from grandparents.|

Then this morning, Tabby found that one of the eggs had hatched! She said the chick was so little. I promised the boys we'd go out and look at it a bit later this morning. Precious is our seasoned mother and should do a great job raising the biddies.
We don't have the same confidence in Beru because last year she murdered a chick! (We had put some that we bought under her, hoping she would bond to them. She did not!) The eggs she is sitting on are due to hatch this weekend. We hope she will redeem herself and prove to be a good mama hen.
Watching our hens raise chicks has made Bible verses like this one has really come to life and mean more to me:
"He shall cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you shall take refuge;His truth shall be your shield and buckler." - Psalm 91:4
