A family in Washington State has offered a $25,000 challenge grant to Rainbow Network. Any new gift to Rainbow Network before March 31, will be matched up to $25,000. Based in Springfield, MO (founded by United Methodist businessman, Keith Jaspers) Rainbow Network serves in 111 remote rural villages in Nicaragua. A gift of $4000 will provide materials for a community to build a new house; $5000 will provide a well for clean, healthy water for a village; $30 per month will enable a youth to attend high school (currently 1,000 students are receiving scholarships). Gifts of all sizes are appreciated. To contribute or for more information, go to www.rainbownetwork.org or call 417-889-8088. Cleo Kottwitz and Judy Parsons will join a “go and see” Rainbow Network study tour, April 8-12, and they invite other MUMC members to go along; for information go to: www.goandsee.org. or call them: 573-446-0799.
