In the same way,
let your light shine before others,
that they may see your good deeds
and glorify your Father in heaven.
Has your light been shining, especially during the past two weeks?
Harrell Sharkey, Jr. received the better of two possible diagnoses that the doctors were considering. I’m simplify the results by saying he does NOT have cancer. He has something that is treatable with antibiotics and steroids for the remainder of his life. Join lots of family and friends in thanking God for this diagnosis.
Annette W. Kauffman is now feeling better and back at home. Thank you for praying for her.
The flood clean-up and recovery is continuing and will continue for many months, possibly years. I hope you have been involved in helping the victims and/or volunteers in some of the numerous ways available to us. Thank God for all those who have left their homes and families daily or for long periods of time to help those they don’t know, but care about anyway.

Operation Christmas Child Story – https://www.samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child/shoebox-stories-kojo-and-a-yo-yo/
A few weeks ago I heard a lady talking about hearing Kojo speak in person. She was so impressed with his story and the young man he has become because of his “shoebox”. I challenge you to share this story with the children in your family, your church, etc. You can print it out and read it or show the video. Please hare this during the coming week. Think of the blessing this story can be to our American children. Help mold hearts to know how they can impact others.
