Encouragers to host meeting July 6

GRANGEVILLE — Bonita Perreault of Cross-Over Ministry for Everyone will speak at the Encouragers meeting Thursday, July 6, during the no-host luncheon at Oscar’s Restaurant in Grangeville.

Perreault describes herself as a follower of Christ, mother of six children, grandmother, friend, counselor, speaker, teacher and ordained minister, in desperate pursuit of God.

She and husband, Matthew, have been married for 30 years. In 2011, with a computer, a garage, and a dream from God, they began a non-profit ministry to help those who cannot help themselves. In San Diego, they ran a food distribution center which supplied food to 60 needy families. In Grangeville, they opened a fund-raising store to help area residents needing help. They recently gave to a needy orphanage in Uganda.

Perreault will share her spiritual journey and the work of Cross-Over for Everyone at the no-host luncheon, which meets the first Thursday of each month at 101 E. Main in Grangeville.
