Helping our Neighbor in Need
In April of this year Robert Vaughn, husband of Shelby Markwardt Vaughn (MLLC Church Council Member), was in a single vehicle accident. He sustained significant injuries, including brain injuries. He still has months of recovery to go, yet we are thankful for the good progress he has been able to make.
With such a traumatic set of injuries the care needs are significant. Out of love for Robert and his family the MLLC council has organized a fundraiser to offset some of the costs which Robert’s family has for his care.
