Grief share

I will be facilitating a Grief Share — 13 week program which will begin April 9. I have facilitated these groups for the past 12 years.

It is a free program and you can attend any or all sessions. They are not in sequence. Video tapes on different topics are used and then discussed.

One of the most beneficial things I have observed is the effect of group therapy that occurs throughout the sessions.

We have three rules we must abide by. It is alright not to talk, it is alright to laugh or cry and most importantly confidentiality, what is said there stays there.

Grief Share sessions are designed to help you successfully travel from mourning to joy.

The sessions will be held at Faith Fellowship Church in Osceola. This is for adults only and only for people grieving the death of a family member or friend.

Please contact Ken Voltmer at 641-449-3688.

Honduras update

Thank you for your prayers and support in the past. I will be going to Honduras March 13 and would appreciate your prayers and support to continue to feed the 1,700 children we continue to help.

All money collected is used for the feeding program. It is His ministry and I am the facilitator. I also am a Gideon and working with a fellow Gideon in Honduras.

We have given out several hundred New Testaments in many High Schools. Thank you for your consideration in this endeavor.
