Rebecca A. Finkenhofer 16 passed away December 28,2016 at her home her mom's ex boyfriend stabbed and shot this angel who is now in God's care she hid her sister and drew the attention on her he had a domestic violence rap that extended back to 1991 I think we should honor her memory and heroism I heard cops and firefighters attended her funeral and I had she was stabbed 16 times and shot 1 time and I personally attended the funeral to pay my respect to the family

I learned a lot about Rebecca she kept every single thing that anyone ever gave her because she valued you as a person and she always said please and thank you and always asked if she could be excused

Hi Stephen! I'm so glad Jenny and Kristen were able to answer your question while we were out of the office! Water wells do cost more than the $34 that is mentioned in the photo Kristen posted. Like Jenny said, this is a suggested gift for supporters to donate to help us fund a new well. A full well for a center costs close to $9,000 to build. You can find more information about water wells here: https://www.compassion.com/catalog/water-wells.htm. I'm so grateful for people like you who desire to honor others who have given so sacrificially of themselves the way Rebecca did. I will be praying for Rebecca's family as they continue to grieve. Thanks for sharing!
