Donation Made In Memory of Bob Hudson and Orville Jones
This past year brought the loss of two dear friends who have loved and supported the MNC Team for several years. After living to be 100, Orville could look back at decades of leading mission trips all over the world and around the U.S. On more than half of those trips, you would find Bob, who lived to be 78, working by his side building hospitals, clinics, schools, churches, and homes in developing countries or poor areas within the United States.
Driven by compassionate hearts and a passion to make a difference, these men gave of their lives to impact the lives of others in a meaningful way.

Life is Good intentionally promotes its positive message of life through a philanthropic arm called "Playmakers". Playmakers is rooted in the belief that "Life can hurt, but play can heal". Children only get one childhood. Play is the medium through which children explore, learn, connect, and joyfully engage with the surrounding world.
Consumed by fear and powerlessness, traumatized children stop playing, connecting with others and experiencing joy in the world around them. The Playmaker approach to playfulness provides children with opportunities to feel creatively engaged, safe, loved, and joyful. This type of transformative play helps children build relationships with key people in their lives and enables them to build resilience in the face of life's greatest challenges.
Playful loving relationships help kids heal. "It's all about the relationships. The magic is not in the play, but in the loving, joyful relationships that play helps to build.
