DEXTER - On Sunday, Nov. 16, Billy Mikoliza and Emmitt Ross were given a challenge by Pastor Lois Field of the Christian Community Church in Dexter. Based on the Parable of the Talents in the Gospel of Matthew, each boy was given a ten dollar bill. The challenge was for them to go out and use their talents and try to double the amount.
Each boy bought materials and made Christmas items. Billy made Christmas tree decorations and Emmitt made Christmas cards. They then sold the items to family, friends, and church members.
On Sunday, Dec. 7, they brought back the money to the church that was made. They more than tripled the amounts with a combined amount of $66.
This money was presented to the Town of Dexterâ€™s Warm Your Neighbor Emergency Fuel Fund in their names to help families in need to stay warm this winter.
