Miriam Neff

A group of women delivered 110 gift bags to widows from the congregation. A group of volunteers met at Miriam Neff's house to assemble and deliver them. One woman who served shared the following: “Thank you so much for the opportunity to meet some of the dear ladies from church who have lost a spouse. The ladies were surprised and deeply appreciative of the gift bag and being remembered by the church. It was a blessing to be able to talk and pray with those who I saw and could personally hand the bag to them.” And another: “I delivered gift bags to several and to summarize: many miss church so much! They do not know when they will be able to return. It’s all so different now. A few had tears to be remembered. Many wanted me to stay and chat, and I did so. Lots of loneliness out there.”
