Thank You Melinda

We want to thank a wonderful young woman that has worked tirelessly behind the scenes at HHH for some time now.  Melinda Lavenau has been providing administrative support to the Board of Directors and our Field Directors.  Her duties included bookkeeping – mainly keeping our Treasurer out of trouble, social media guru, keeping our President on task and putting together the quarterly newsletter.  Melinda has been a valuable asset to HHH and since her time here our outreach of new members have hit record numbers!  Melinda has also had the extra task of helping our family get up to speed on the behind the scenes workings of the books, Facebook and the website.  She is always willing to answer our questions and never complained when we needed a bit of info on short notice.  Not to mention her smile can brighten the darkest day.  We are so blessed to have been able to work with you and cannot thank you enough for all that you do.

While Melinda’s time at HHH will be over at the end of May, she will remain a revered friend of the organization.  We want to wish Melinda & Jeff the best of luck in their future endeavors.  HHH will not be the same without you, your work has impacted more lives than you are probably aware and we ask God to bless you in all that you do!

The Gift of Reading


Sitting in the recliner (or swinging in the hammock) while immersed in a great book is one of the great joys in my life.  We encourage Alana to read every day – always a book of her choice – to foster a love of reading and lifelong learning.  We want to pass this gift on to the kids at HHH as well.  Recently my friend, Becky Anderson, lovingly helped us to give this gift to our kids.  She gifted us a box of novels written in French!  They belonged to her grandmother and she wanted them to be loved again – just as her grandmother loved them.

French novels (romans) donated by Becky Anderson

Do you also have a love for reading and a desire to help the kids at HHH learn to love reading?  We are in need of french texts and novels to share with the kids.  We are trying to enhance their French language skills and reading is an excellent way to work thru a language – we know because we are trying to go thru them and are learning quite a bit!  We are also looking for English textbooks that we might be able to utilize in helping develop an English curriculum for the kids.  We especially would like anything that has to do with developing early reading skills.  If you have access to any type of these books would you let us know so we can evaluate the best use for them.

If you have some books that you would like to donate, please reach out to us to determine the best way to get them to us.  Please remember, shipping and customs costs are very high, so we need to coordinate all shipments to HHH through our US office.
