SERV IN G

In March, Rev. Kathy Dobbins, our Minister of Spiritual Formation, submitted her letter of resignation to our Personnel Committee and shared her plans to retire from Smoke Rise effective July 1, 2019. In the coming months, we will be celebrating her ministry and expressing our appreciation. The eggs laid at Huevos del Rey in Honduras will be sold to the HOI Nutrition program, The First 1000 Days, and locally. This health program supplies pregnant mothers being monitored by HOI’s Health Director, Dr. German Jimenez, with an egg a day for each person in their family.
