Jacob's Fund mission trip: JOIN US

The Red Thread team is off again, this time to McKenna Farms in Dallas, Georgia for our second mission trip. Members of Christ United Methodist Church in Middletown, Ohio, were given a personal invitation this morning by Glenna, Director of Jacob’s Fund, pictured below.

We’d like to extend that same invitation to YOU!
This year we’ll be at the farm on a weekday when many of the children come for therapy. We’re hoping to meet some of the kids and observe hippotherapy and therapeutic riding sessions as we work around the farm, broadening our understanding of this life-changing treatment. We’ll spruce up the Jacob Beachy Sensory Trail, perform other needed tasks and form lasting relationships.

Folks from Christ Church who went with us in 2011 are eager to return to visit the courageous kids, caring staff, beautiful horses, and lovely farm setting that inspired and humbled us.
