First Bank of Berne Donates to Loving Shepherd Ministries (LSM)

March 05, 2024

Bluffton, IN. – First Bank of Berne made a $1,000 donation to Loving Shepherd Ministries (LSM). Pictured are (L to R) Erica Bennett, FBB Bluffton Branch Manager and Jean Wesly Alcin, Project & Partner Development Coordinator LSM.

LSM provides Adoption Resources, helping families in the U.S. save time and money in the adoption process. For severely vulnerable children who don’t get adopted, LSM creates in-country Homes of Hope to foster long-term redemption stories for individual vulnerable children, as well as their communities. For children who still have at least one parent, but whose families are in dire need of business training and other assistance, we provide Family Preservation in Haiti and Ethiopia. We also provide technical education and practical skills through LSM Technical Education, as well as job opportunities in the broader communities we serve through Business Operations. Finally, LSM’s U.S. Programs provide counseling and essential tools for American adoptive and foster parents.

These funds were going to help purchase auction items for their benefit on 3/2/24 at the Wells Co. 4H Building.

You can donate online at or contact LSM at 260.824.9000
