Shelly has taught and lived in our community for almost 10 years, and along with her husband Mark, unselfishly devoted some time to missionary work while raising three wonderful children. Shelly and her family now need your help. We would like to raise funds to help defray the cost of her mounting medical bills and seek further diagnosis and possible treatment at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.
