Cow and Company: Meeting a Widow’s Needs
Agriculture and Livestock | Print
Elderly widows often need food, heat and shelter. But, they especially need company. You helped provide for Mineta’s physical needs when you bought her a cow from the BGR Gift Catalog. With it, she could sell milk and cheese for income. But, you also gave her a way to build relationships. Christian workers spent time with her, training her to care for the cow. Then, they started bringing volunteers by her home, and Mineta loved serving them coffee and snacks. She felt grateful for the cow but she found joy in contact with other people. Thank you for giving such a beautiful gift to a lonely woman.
