Doug and Lori are raising money for Christmas gifts for the residents of Missouri Hills. Please help with a small donation.

Missouri Hills is a division of the Department of Youth Services (dys). The residents are all teenagers from difficult environments (single parent homes, parents in jail, parents with drug/alcohol addictions, etc.) These teens have committed crimes and are incarcerated for up to 12 months.

Doug and Lori visit Missouri Hills twice a week, Monday with girls, Tuesday with boys. Each visit they gather with a group of teens to share the Word of God. They bring snacks for them to enjoy while reading, talking and sometimes watching a video. Bibles are freely given to anybody who wants one. The bibles are donated to the ministry by a generous family from San Diego but Doug and Lori cover the costs of everything else.

Doug and Lori are having a Christmas party for the residents in the two houses which they visit. The party is an annual event which allows Doug and Lori to teach about the birth of Christ and the extra special love He has for them. At this party the residents will enjoy food, fun and presents.

Your donation of any amount will help us buy gifts for them to open as well as snacks to enjoy at their Christmas party. Will you consider helping make this party a success? Please consider donating anything, even $1 is not too small.
