Alton Webteam: September 2017
Thank you very much for the recent gift of £120.00 that you sent on behalf of Alton Methodist Church. Please express our gratitude to all those who have contributed to this donation.
This gift will support people like Regai from Zimbabwe, a widow struggling to grow enough food to feed herself and her children. Regai and others in her community have received training on how to keep and rear chickens to sell. Once they have set up their business, they will gain a stable source of income enabling them to provide a better future for their children. Regai says, "I hope that by the end of the year my life will be improved, my children will go to school and have enough food to eat."
Thank you for helping to make changes to the lives of people like Regai, so that more people can fulfil their God-given potential. We would love to keep you up to date with our work, showing how your generosity is transforming more lives. For this reason, we have included a leaflet inviting you to become An All We Can Partner Church where you can continue to journey with Regai's community and see how your support is transforming more lives. If you have any questions or you would like more information, please contact us on 020 7467 5132.
God bless you and everyone associated with Alton Methodist Church.
