Kids Say the Funniest Things
Attending a wedding for the first time, a little girl whispered to her mother, “Why is the bride dressed in white?” “Because white is the color of happiness, and today is the happiest day of her life.” The child thought about this for a moment, then said, “So why is the groom wearing black?”

I am posting this again since we have a 5th Sunday this month. Remember to give to the Holston Home for Children on August 30.
The Holston Home for Children
654 of the 887 responded to the ministry to help needy children through the 5th Sunday Offering and Special Advance Offerings.
During 2013-14, care was provided for over 700 children. At Beacon School, the accredited on campus school, 26 children completed 12 yrs. of school by receiving a high school diploma or GED. Over the last couple of years through the Christian Life program, 85 children made a profession of faith in Jesus and 76 were baptized.
The Brumit Center provided preparation for adult living services for 37 youth.
The Residential Centers provided nurture, care, education and treatment for 317 adolescent boys and girls. The Home to Stay Program successfully reunited 60 children and youth with their families.
Foster Parents provided a family setting for 198 children and youth.
There were 135 active foster families this past year. Of these, 139 children were served through our three Family Service Centers in TN and 59 were cared for in SW Virginia.
Intercountry Adoption Program had 7 placements. Our staff also assisted 45 other families in completing adoptive home studies. And the Early Childhood Education Centers served 215 preschool children and both continued to receive the highest rating of three-star by the Tennessee Department of Human Services.
Thank you from the Holston Home for Children
