Talley Breedlove to Serve in Philippines

            Talley Breedlove of Hayesville, NC, has been accepted into the YASC program and will be leaving in August to serve in the Philippines. She is the daughter of Susan Morgan and the Rev. William Breedlove, Rector at Good Shepherd Episcopal Church in Hayesville.

            YASC (Young Adult Service Corps) is an international service program of the Episcopal Church for individuals between the ages of 21- 30. This program sends young Episcopalians to receiving diocese all around the world for year long commitments to service.

            “The amount of support and love I have received from this community is amazing! I am blessed beyond belief. Thank you so much. I feel all the more ready to go because of all the enthusiastic support.

            “I will be doing my service in the Philippines working for The Episcopal Church of the Philippines’ E-CARE program. E-CARE stands for The Episcopal Community Action for Renewal and Empowerment. This organization works with Philippine communities doing asset based community development to help them improve their lives. I will be placed in one of those communities and the work I will do will be based on the needs in that area. You can follow along at breedlovetk.wixsite.com/followingthelamb.”

            The fundraiser hosted June 20th by Good Shepherd Episcopal Church raised $7600 which guaranteed funding for Talley’s first year in the YASC. Suzi Herbert led the Low Country Boil and raffle. Wally Figura and his Holy Smokers made the Low Country Boil. The big raffle prize was a week at Jane Oliver’s Pawleys Island home.
