Lamb Foundation Founder and Director Donna Mengel recently lost 35 pounds through prayer and fasting of all sugar and breads. The year 2012 is slated to have health goals set for Lamb Foundation staff as well as residents, and those looking to lose weight, stop smoking or seeking a healthier lifestyle will be encouraged to do so at Lamb Foundation through health care coordination of employee health insurance options and Detweiler Family Medicine & Associates. Donna Mengel has committed to personally pay all residents $1.00 for every pound lost, with weigh-ins held every week on Detweiler Days at the office. Resi-dents will have their initial weigh-ins at the Healthier Ewe Health Fair on October 18, 2011.
Residents will be paid each week for their weight loss. All residents are encouraged to participate and enjoy the contest

In 2011 Lamb Foundation issued a new policy for employees, staff and volunteers that smoking is absolutely prohibited on or in Lamb Foundation utilized properties, vehicles, activities and job sites.

October is re-certification month for various Lamb Foundation staff members who are certified in CPR and First Aid. Instructor Alan Fenstermaker will be opening up the certification course to Lamb Foundation residents, as well as staff, who wish to be CPR and First Aid Certified for purposes of resume building and job search qualifications, or just for the sake of continuing education.

Self-employed for over 22 years, Dale has built a construction business, landscape business, computer software application, programmed dozens of websites, been a missionary with YWAM, and is now proud to be serving Lamb Foundation as business manager. People ask, "How do you go from framing houses to computer programming?" In Matthew 25:15, Jesus talks about giving out talents; Dale believes this applies to many things including the skills God gives us. If we use them in an unselfish way, not only will He bless us, He will give more.
In November Dale will be married for 20 years to his best friend, Renee. He loves to be with her and is looking forward to the next 20 years together. Dale is also the proud father of four incredible girls ranging from ages 11-17. In moving forward, Dale’s goal is to continue using the talents God gave him, and add more, while working with the Lamb Foundation.
