LORD, be gracious to us;
we long for you.
Be our strength every morning,
our salvation in time of distress.

Operation Christmas Child
- We were hoping to have enough pencils & pens to give each child a whole pack. I think we are a little short of that at this time.
- This week we are collecting $1.00 calculators for the oldest children who will receive shoeboxes. These are usually found at dollar stores and sometimes Walmart. We bought the ones at one Walmart for $.88. Check around.
- Next week, we will be collecting bandanas of various colors. We have found them from $.50 – $2.00. Shop around.
The “Young” Ladies’ Birthday Party will be Tuesday of next week. We had a good group last month and hope for a larger group next week. Come celebrate August birthdays at The Cafe with us. “Birthday ladies” get a free meal.
Last night, the boys and girls spent much of their time in Bible Drill class praying in a circle to thank God for many things and to learn how to use our Bibles. We had a great class! They learned so much.
Let’s continue to both pray and do for others.
