As a family we would like to share one of Mom's last wishes. She requested that any monies you would spend on flowers be sent to a wonderful mission she has supported. Possibility Place Christian Mission is ministering to the people of Tanzania, Africa. Their work consists of preaching the Gospel to the lost, bringing needed food and nutritional supplements to widows, the elderly and mothers with malnourished infants. This same ministry is also done in the bush country to those who are lost and isolated. They are one of the few missions where 100% of every dollar donated goes to the work in the field. Mom's heart was especially for the widows and the babies who can't get enough milk because their mothers don't get enough food to breastfeed them. If the Lord lays this on your heart, please write a check to PPCM and send it to Possibility Place Christian Mission, 625 W. Deer Valley Road, Suite 103-309, Phoenix, AZ 85027.
