$800 raised for My Brother’s Keeper
My Sister’s Keeper, the prison ministry started in 1999 by Myrna Cook of the Cape Elizabeth United Methodist Church, was honored and celebrated at two special services on Sunday, March 21. Kelly Dell’Aquila, director of operations for MSK, delivered a sermon about MSK at both services and a 13-minute slide presentation was presented to highlight MSK’s far-reaching accomplishments.
But perhaps most importantly, a special collection was taken to establish seed money to begin My Brother’s Keeper for men in prison and modeled after the 11-year successes of My Sister’s Keeper. The collection, which totaled an impressive $800, was taken in honor of Myrna and her late husband, Bill. As Pastor Ruth Morrison explained at the services, “It was a small collection like this that started My Sister’s Keeper 11 years ago. Small seeds can produce large successes.”
Myrna and her family were present at the second service to take part in the celebration.
