“I’ve served nearly 30 years with Marion Medical Mission from it’s inception.  I worked as their secretary, served on the board for a short time, helped pack many a footlocker, organized and carried-out fundraisers, and am currently serving as the moderator for the annual board meetings.

It has been awesome seeing what God can do by empowering people to make a difference in the lives of those who need good quality ‘WATER!'”
