The Menno Knights continue to lose weight and get exercise. This week they averaged over 40 minutes of exercise each day. What a great way to take care of your God-given bodies! As a group they covered 349 more miles and lost another four pounds. Will they reach their goals of losing 200 pounds and circling the Great Lakes in the four weeks remaining? 

Here's an update from MDS...We have one request from the Gladwin area recovery. One home needs to be resided. All the supplies are ready to go. Contact Bess Fitzgerald @ 269-381-4264 if your group is interested in helping a family recover from damage related to the dam failures and floods last year.
