NEWS AND TRIBUNE BRIEFS — For Dec. 3

(Continued)

Camel purchases to help Asians

This Christmas season, Transformation Network is partnering with Gospel for Asia to raise money to purchase 10 camels for families in poverty in Asia. Their goal is to raise $3,450.

Why camels? In India, camel’s milk can be a source of food and income for a family. Also, the tough, durable wool of a camel can be spun into cloth to provide a family with clothing to wear and sell. Therefore, by raising money for camels, others can bless families and show them the love of God in a tangible way.

Transformation Network is inviting the Jeffersonville community to help them reach their goal by donating money either at their office at 2992 Industrial Parkway in Jeffersonville or online at http://mygfa.org/tnetcamels/. You can also reach Transformation Network at 812-282-2810.

NEW ALBANY

Church to present play

The drama team of First Baptist Church, 813 Spring St., New Albany, will present “Jesus Loves Fruitcakes” at 7 p.m. nightly, Thursday Dec. 5 through Saturday, Dec. 7.

The colorful, crazy yet thoroughly Christian staff and residents of the Jesus House, a retirement home, prepare to welcome Ellery Jamison into their world. Unfortunately, the last place on earth Jamison wants to be is in a Christian nursing home, especially where one of the residents prides himself on making red and green fruitcakes for Christmas.

Admission is free. For more information, call 812-944-4318.

CHARLESTOWN
