Help Mrs. McClure
KNOXVILLE, Tenn.--Mark Carr of Return to Torah Ministries (affiliated with the 7th Day Church of God) told The Journal recently about a project he and fellow ministry members have tackled: to raise $1,200 to move a donated mobile home to help Judith
McClure of Metropolis, Ill.
Mrs. McClure, 68, was living in a 36-year-old dilapidated, moldy, unsafe trailer house.
Since Mrs. McClure's husband, Darrell, died unexpectedly 10 years ago, she has not had the means to keep up her property while working as a caretaker for other people in their residences.
Return to Torah acquired a donated replacement mobile home for Mrs. McClure and needs about $1,100 to move it to her location.
To help Mrs. McClure, who presently lives in a 10-by-10-foot area of her old trailer next to a gas heater to keep her warm, write Return to Torah Ministries at P.O. Box 70635, Knoxville, Tenn. 37938, U.S.A., or write Mr. Carr at email@example.com. Or
call (865) 922-5420.
"We seek to minister to the windows, orphans, to the elderly and those who have a pure love for God and His Son Jesus in their heart," according to a statement on the ministry's Web site.
Donations to Return to Torah are tax-deductible in the United States.
