Announcements (July 1, 2001)

1. Our two-bit collection this Sunday is for our victims of the June 23 earthquake in Peru. Your contributions will go to help villagers in a mountain area hard hit by the earthquake. The immediate needs are for food and blankets. $5 will provide food for a family for a day. $10 will purchase one blanket. The long range needs are to rebuild homes. $100 will provide building materials (wood, nails & tin for roofs - the sides are of adobe blocks) for a small home.
