husband, Brian, and I have partnered with Lighthouse for Life for over two years
by giving of our time and talents as well as financially to the Mission. Brian
met Jen Thompson at Shandon United Methodist during an Outreach meeting and was
moved by her testimony and service. He immediately wanted to get her involved
in his Columbia Business Group as well as opportunities to speak to our Sunday
School class the Growing Disciples at SUMC.
I was introduced to Jen shortly afterwards and felt the Lord calling me to help
Lighthouse for Life with my talents in graphic design and marketing. I have
created logos for the Run for Her Life 5K as well as an ad for Columbia
Business Monthly. In the Spring of 2017 I organized the Shandon UMC Children’s
Consignment Sale with half of the proceeds to be donated to LHFL.
The Lord is truly at work
with this program and it is evident in the outpouring of support from the
community. We hope those in Columbia and throughout SC will partner with LHFL
and be a part of the change!”

So close but not quite there. We can see the finish line to annoucing Karis Home open, but have not quite crossed it yet. Floors are being cleaned, landscaping coming together, the porch repaired and painted, blinds hung and very soon hope to bring in the furniture and other items you all have provided! Perhaps in our next newsletter we’ll announce that the welcome mat is out!! Thanks for the continued prayers towards this end.
We are still looking for some new deck furniture (porch swing, rocking chairs, table),some new yard equipment (riding lawn mower, weed eater), etc. Let us know if you are interested. You may also check out our Amazon wishlist.
