Three teenage siblings from Georgia want to help. Today, they’re releasing Five-O, an app for Android and iPhone that aims to crowdsource a nationwide police-ratings database—a Yelp for police departments, as one of its young developers describes it.
Matthew’s House Ministry on Grand Rapids’ West side called the farm last week, and then received a truckload of vegetables the next morning.
Pastor George Werkema started the ministry six years ago; now it’s become a community staple.
When her car started filling up with water, reaching her shoulders, Jena David thought she was a goner.
So did police, who mistakenly reported her dead in last week’s devastating floods.
But David survived the disaster, thanks to a good Samaritan who stopped to help.
“I think it was a guardian angel watching out for me,” said David, 30.
Lillian Weber is on a mission.
Every day she makes another dress for a small child she’ll never meet.
“I could probably make two a day, but I only make one,” she says.
The dresses are collected and sent overseas to little girls in Africa by a Christian outreach group called “Little Dresses for Africa”.
