| Real Hurricane Relief |
Pine Island United Methodist Church in Florida has seen nearly 100 families leave the congregation since Hurricane Charley struck last year. While those families have sought less storm-prone surroundings, others have stayed and are still picking up the pieces. The church is helping them rebuild their homes and repair the emotional damage that comes with such a disaster.
| Coping Without Fathers |
When United Methodist Shawn Askinosie was young, his father died and no one wanted him to discuss it. Today, he is a successful attorney who is making sure that children who've experienced the loss of a loved one don't have to suffer silently. Shawn founded a grief counseling service for children in Springfield, Missouri called "Lost and Found." He says that he is honoring the memory of his father by helping others heal their broken hearts.
