This event commemorates the fact that 40 years ago on July 20, 1969, a unique event in the history of the universe happened. Outside the lunar module in which two American astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong landed. special marks were made by leaving their footprints on the moon. Aldrin, the Apollo 11 pilot, made an even more unique note in historical annals by taking communion before exiting the module.
Aldrin wanted to mark the first moonwalk by more than leaving footprints. As a Christian he sought counsel of his pastor, who suggested communion on the moon. His minister consecrated a communion wafer and a small vial of communion wine. Aldrin took them with him as he left the Earth’s surface and flew into space in Apollo 11, to leave heartprints of gratitude to God, while on the moon.

Danny Wilmoth Fund A benevolence fund has been set up by Monte Sano United Methodist Church(MSUMC) for Danny Wilmoth, whose leukemia is being treated at MD Anderson Cancer Hospital in Texas. Danny has battled this disease for two years. He and his wife , Kimberly, and their children, Caleb and Marcella, reside at 311 Monte Sano Boulevard. Danny is the owner of Monte Sano Lawn Care. He is a caring neighbor, often helping others without expecting any recognition. Many say he would do anything for you, even “give you the shirt off his back”, if you asked for it! Danny has been a Monte Sano resident since his mom, Dee Hall, married life long mountain resident, Carey Hall . He attended Monte Sano Elementary and has many friends on this mountain that he loves so very much.The fund was kept a secret from Danny until Dee decided his knowing about the fund might help him realize he was in our hearts and not forgotten after his lengthy hospitalizations. There are huge expenses on the family to be with him: traveling, food, parking, housing , and drug costs that are looming as well as missed wages. We are able to make a direct deposit into Dee’s bank as the funds are deposited by the church bookkeeper. Please make checks payable to MSUMC and designate on the “for” line The Danny Wilmoth Fund. I hope we express to them our love, caring, and support through generous giving. The church address is 601 Monte Sano Blvd. 35801. Office hours are Monday through Thursday , 8am until 1pm .
