For the second month in a row there were fewer needs in the month than shares available, so all members got a 6% reduction on their share slip. That is GREAT news, especially during this holiday season. I am always thrilled to see a reduction in needs as it means members are doing a good job of keeping costs low and managing their care. Being mindful of the costs helps the entire ministry and helps keep it affordable for as many people as possible. God Bless Samaritan Ministries and its members.
