Vietnam war veteran Tom Agness, husband of LMVFM oncoming Board member Phyllis Agness, spends some quality "loving" time with his friend Holly, LMVFM "Paws & Effects" spokes dog. Since coming on board with her mother (LMVFM Administrative Assistant, Jody Ford), Holly has been present at LMVFM mission trips across the U.S..

The Agness family have supported and embraced the Mission program's such as our quarterly Women Veterans Wellness retreats, and LMVFM's "Paws & Effects" therapy dog program for several years. We are very grateful that they provided our ministry with the opportunity share our mission work with attendees at a recent homeless veterans event at Messiah Lutheran in Fort Wayne.
