At the end of each year, Cloverhill has a Legacy Offering that makes an impact around the world. 
If you haven't already heard, here is a recap of where this years' Legacy Offering will be going: 

Oasis Church. Nate Clarke, one of our own kids is planting a church on the Northside of Richmond. 
Nate is a gifted communicator, diligent soul winner, and passionate about expanding God’s kingdom.

He has recruited a core team from Cloverhill and next fall we will send them out to establish a life-giving church and to reach that part of the city.

Every plant needs a partner and we have promised Nate to partner with them, in prayer, our finances, and some of our people to help launch Oasis.
Hope for Kids. We will partner with Jason Furrow who has a ministry to orphans in Honduras.

We have sent numerous teams to help out and be a part of that life changing ministry. They have 4 homes with 40 kids.

It's not organized or run like a group home but like a large family. They are in the process of becoming self sustained (meaning needing very little outside funding).

They raise and grow their own food.  They have been renting a fishing boat where they catch 100 pounds of fish each week to sell for income and to use to feed the kids.

Jason has an opportunity to buy a boat for $6,500. Cloverhill wants to pay for it. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day.

 Buy a  motivated missionary a boat and he will feed 40 kids and make money to house, educate and clothe them for a lifetime. 

“We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophecy in accordance with your faith,

if it is serving then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently;

if it is to show mercy, then do it cheerfully.” (Romans 12:6-8)
