Mission Box
This week's mission box supports Mommy Reads, a ministry of the United Methodist Women. Every child likes to hear their mother read them a bedtime story, Mommy Reads allows mothers who are incarcerated to still do that. Four times a year, the Mommy Reads group travels to the Lowell Correctional Institution for Women where they bring books, recorders, and MP3 players. During their visit 30 mothers/inmates read and record books which are then shipped to their children. Each visit costs at least $900. In addition to cash donations, gifts of new paperback books are always welcome. Lives are changed on both sides of the prison walls on each of these visits as these mothers are beyond grateful for this chance to connect with the children they miss. To be involved, or to find out more information, please contact Beth Haines (352-373-9469). (Text giving: text amount and "mommy" to 352-204-0163)
