There's nothing that Jan Markquart — whose family fondly calls Grandma Jan— loves more than watching her grandchildren make a difference in the world. Acts of service, and sharing the divine love of Christ with others, are values she and her husband Ed have spent years instilling in their family, including the youngest members.
And while these values have importance throughout the year, Christmas time has a particularly special place in Grandma Jan's heart for giving.
Gifts of livestock are making profound difference in the lives of others
"People were working as hard as they could to make life better," she said. "Gifts of livestock were helping make that possible."
Grandma Jan knows that where there is a need – LWR is there.
"LWR knows where the greatest need is because they are there," she said. "It's just what LWR does. We love LWR and what they want to do for the world. It’s important for us to be part of it and be good servants to the world.
