February has been a sad month in so many ways. On the 8th February, angelina35464's mom passed peacefully away after a long and valiant battle with cancer. On the 28th February x0xLuxyx0x's dad passed away after suffering two small strokes on the 18th. Despite valiant efforts he too lost his final battle. Our prayers and support go out to both angy and luxy.
kimnd470 just posted the following: I just got news that my sister in law's baby passed away. Julia was born at 4:09 5th March and passed away on the same day. Please say a prayer for her and her family.
On a more positive note peppperettte's daughter will be travelling to Rwanda next month to help people who live in unmentionable difficulties, without the very basics such as sanitation and electricity. This is an explanation of her mission:
My name is Katie Millonzi. I am 22, a full-time student at UW-Milwaukee studying to be an Interpreter for the Deaf Community, and your friendly neighborhood barista at the Whitefish Bay Starbucks. I am going to Rwanda, Africa April 18th-30th. We're sending a crew of 10 to set up electricity, comfort widows and orphans who are still hurting from the genocide, and hopefully bring comfort to the victims of the recent earthquakes.
We will all keep you in our prayers, Katie. If anyone would like more information on the program or would like to assist in some way, please contact peppperettte directly.
