Those of you, who have been members of PCM for a few years, are probably familiar with Heifer International. We’ve been sending the proceeds from the PCM Christmas card to Heifer for as long as I’ve been a member. Having said that, I’m still going to talk about some of the basics of Heifer, our Mission Partner for November, but I’ll try to include a few of lesser-known facts so that even those “seasoned” members might learn something new. The mission of Heifer Int’l. is to work with communities to end world hunger and poverty and to care for the earth. Did you know that nearly 870 million people around the world don’t have enough food to eat? That’s a pretty staggering fact—here’s another: over 270 million families have been lifted out of hunger and poverty as a result of Heifer. Animals are where that starts; milk, eggs, cheese, honey and wool provide life-sustaining products. Each family who receives an animal agrees to pass on the offspring of that animal to another person in need. On average, at least nine generations of Heifer animals can be traced. In some communities, 22 generations can be traced! While it all starts with animals, it doesn’t end there. Heifer is also involved with teaching families to manage water resources.
Thank you so much for the use of your building for my Mother‘s Memorial. -Carole Miller & Family~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I've been struggling to find words to express our deep thanks to our PCM Family for the tremendous support we have received from you all. The feelings of love, support, care is so deep. Thank you for that—for everything—Thank you.

It is mid-October as I write this article for the November Voice. Right now we are kicking off the annual giving campaign, planning the town hall meeting and collecting preliminary 2015 budget information.
Deacons met Tuesday night, October 14, and were honored to be greeted by Margo Forsythe and some of her ESL students. They served the Deacons homemade apple pie! The ESL students have been so appreciative of the ways that PCM supports and encourages them; the apple pie was a way of saying thanks to the congregation for the school supplies.
