Heifer International

South Boston News
Halifax United Methodist Church began a new mission project on Valentine's Day, Heifer International. Adrienne Chesbro explains the mission's purpose, shown here holding an ark bank which each parishoner took home to fill with their spare change. The banks were passed out by the children of the church. All ark banks will be collected by Palm Sunday, and the church's youth will then choose which animals will be sent to families in need throughout the world. These animals are “living loans” because in exchange for receiving their animal and training in its care, each family agrees to give one of its animal's offspring to another family in need. It's called Passing on the Gift. Halifax United Methodist Church youth might choose heifers or goats, sheep or chicks, llamas or honeybees, water buffalo, pigs, ducks, or geese.
