Psalm 71:1-6
2 Chronicles 35:20-27
Acts 19:1-10

Kaight Althoff and her husband Rob, members of Congregational Church of South Hero in VT, adopted twin boys from Ethiopia. Providing a better life for two children just didn’t seem like enough after seeing, first hand, the poverty and scarcity of water in Ethiopia. “We wanted to help the orphans that are still there and spent a lot of time in prayer and finding the right organization to work with,” Kaight said. “We decided to partner with Friends of Orphans and Vulnerable Children(FOVC). The Althoff family raised more than $5,000 for FOVC in one weekend by sponsoring an Ethiopian-themed dinner. Thirty volunteers served 139 people who gave generously to the cause. “Our goal is to raise $15,000 for FOVC,” Kaight said. “$10,000 for a well project and $5,000 for a crops for widows project.”
