July Mission of the Month… thanks to all who contributed to the July MOM.  We were able to donate 749 pieces of new and gently used school clothes to the Judson Back to School clothing bank.  Many of you made a monetary contribution; that is greatly appreciated also.  Judson can  purchase items that are not donated.  If anyone missed the July deadline, but would still like to donate clothing, please see Carrie B. or Linda B. to make sure the clothing gets to the clothing bank.

August Mission of the Month….El Ayundante.  This organization was our host in 2014 when our group went to Honduras for mission work. They focus on meeting the needs around them such as clean water, housing, and now have a medical, dental, and optical clinic on site!
