Habitat for Humanity:  Habitat for Humanity – the RV Habitat Team is coming!  They will build a home in Kirksville between April 29 and May 13 while camping at the NEMO Fairgrounds.  The foundation for the home must be poured before they arrive – donations are needed for that work.  Our plate offering in April (April 15) will be for that work.  Churches will be cooperating to lead 10:30 a.m. devotions and provide a lunch meal on site M-F while they are in Kirksville.  Trinity will take one of those days, although we do not know which day it will be yet.  Diane is looking for volunteers to prepare and deliver food; let her know if you are interested.  Meanwhile, pray for safe travel for these marvelous people and for a successful Habitat build!  See http://www.habitat.org/cd/rv/schedule.aspx for more details.
