Lovingly,
The Kids

Just a note on the e-tithing (as far as I know): Thunderbird West is not set up to take your tithing electronically, so if you sign up for e-tithing, any funds you designate will go to World Church. Since we are called to give equally to both world-wide and local mission tithes, you will still need to contribute locally as you have done in the past through your envelope or other methods.
