Above all, love each other deeply,
because love covers over a multitude of sins.
~I Peter 4:8~
The family of Jacob Daniels is so thankful tonight for skilled pilots. The helicopter pilot who was bring Jacob in from his platform in the Gulf and God, the heavenly pilot, worked to bring a malfunctioning helicopter to a safe landing on another platform. I don’t know all the details, but I’m thanking God for sparing them.
Pray for Mr. Burnell Simpson. He’s enjoying having company at home.

Operation Christmas Child
- The Children in Action (mission study class) was certainly in action last night. There packed the pencil cases for four of the six groups of children last night. As they packed, we were able to talk about missions and how the children who received the shoeboxes would be blessed. Before our class, two girls who arrived early were able to help me fold and put together some packing boxes. It was a great night to be a missions leader!
- Saturday is almost here. I expect a great morning (10 A.M. – Noon) as adults are trained to collect the boxes from other churches. Feel free to join us if you are interested.
- October 10th will be a day to assemble the flat cardboard into a shoebox shape. You many join me at 10 A.M. or at 6 P.M. that Monday.
- October 29th will be the day all the boxes are filled and packaged into official OCC boxes for shipment to children all around the world.
