But God demonstrates his own love for us in this:
While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Bro. Joey and I met a lady who represents Samaritan’s Purse in our area. FBC, Kentwood has been asked to become a collection site for “shoeboxes” in November. Lots of volunteers will be needed to man this operation for eight days. We are presently looking at three hour time slots plus others to provide cookies, coffee, etc. If you would be interested in committing to service this way in November, please let Bro. Joey or me know as soon as possible.
“Roselyn and a Picture Book” – (Operation Christmas Child) – https://www.samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child/shoebox-stories-roselyn-and-a-picture-book/
Yesterday, I had a visit from a neighbor/friend. She brought some items for my church to include in the “shoeboxes” we are sending. She had done this for a few years. She blesses my heart and the heart of some little children somewhere each year. As she left, she asked me to call her to tell her what else we could use. She is a ray of sunshine and brings “Joy” to many hearts!
If you would like to help too, ask me what we need a few more of. I carry the list in my purse. You could be an instrument of God’s love to some children this year.
