Meeting the needs of our community encompasses more than we originally realized. We feel compelled to model love in our community in every possible area. The need to help suffering animals in our village soon became apparent. However, because of the 24/7 care of the children, we were unable to offer much assistance other than taking as many animals into our own home as we could. This became our children’s ministry, but the vast number of animals in need was more than we could handle.
