In February, Morgan and Zac Palmer watched their family's Colora home burn following an electrical failure. They lost everything, but gained a new perspective.
Morgan, 21, and Zac, 18, both Rising Sun High graduates and three sport athletes, are now setting out into the world to help others. Both have signed on with The World Race missions projects.

Curtis Cox is ready to help.
Cox, all six feet, six inches of him, and his fellow Boy Scouts are ready to load up your rummage sale bargains to help their scout troop.
A rummage sale, with proceeds benefiting Boy Scout Troop 92, is set for Saturday, March 21 from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. at Mount Pleasant United Methodist Church, 1713 Liberty Grove Road, Colora.
It was a gaping hole in the marketplace and Mount Pleasant United Methodist Church stepped in to fill the void.
No one was delivering soup during the wintertime until the church incorporated it into their biannual sub sale.
Mount Pleasant held their January sale last Friday. The church offers free delivery to local businesses and meals also were available to be picked up at the Colora church from 10 a.m. until noon.
History will be made Saturday, January 10 at 2 p.m. at Janes United Methodist Church in Rising Sun.
Ten members of Boy Scout Troop 92 of Colora will be honored for earning the rank of Eagle Scout.

Before the ministry, she attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City and worked her way up the ladder of a jewelry magazine before becoming editor.
