Wesley's Heifer Project Gift Ark was Overflowing! A few years ago, Wesley set a goal of raising enough money to purchase an entire "gift ark" of livestock as well as the education people need to improve their lives in sustainable ways. And...Wesley did it! Wesley bought the whole ark plus more: two each of pigs, cows, trios of rabbits, donkeys, beehives, sheep, llamas (4 of these), flocks of geese, goats, oxen, flocks of chicks, trios of ducks, trios of guinea pigs, water buffalo, camels and pigs—and training!
Celebration! To celebrate Wesley's success in filling the Heifer Ark, a llama visited Wesley's Sanctuary on Children's Sunday. Our pastors said if we filled the ark in less than a year, they would even kiss a llama and they did!
