Tuesday

 

But I, with shouts of grateful praise, will sacrifice to you.

What I have vowed I will make good.

I will say, ‘Salvation comes from the LORD.’ ”

~Jonah 2:9~

 

First of all, I want to give you the Operation Christmas Child totals for the FBC, Kentwood Drop-off Location.

  • 1705 shoeboxes
  • 87 cartons of shoeboxes
  • 12 volunteers
  • 92 hours worked during the week

The Hammond site were our shoeboxes went to yesterday collected 14,120 shoeboxes from 8 drop-off locations.

All these boxes are being shipped to Atlanta this year.

Thanks to the many people in each church who participated by making donations, buying the items, packing the shoeboxes, and delivering them to the drop-off locations around the world this past week.  Focus on the many, many children who will receive a shoebox, the families who will be touched, and all those who will learn about Jesus and ask Him into their hearts because of a simple shoebox.

I have some new ideas for OCC next year and can hardly wait to begin packing the next boxes this time next year!

 

 

Steve Miller of Line Creek had a successful hip surgery yesterday.  Pray for him as he heals.

Hymn of the Day – “What a Day that will Be”

There is coming a day,
When no heart aches shall come,
No more clouds in the sky,
No more tears to dim the eye,
All is peace forever more,
On that happy golden shore,
What a day, glorious day that will be.

What a day that will be,
When my Jesus I shall see,
And I look upon His face,
The One who saved me by His grace;
When He takes me by the hand,
And leads me through the Promised Land,
What a day, glorious day that will be.

There’ll be no sorrow there,
No more burdens to bear,
No more sickness, no pain,
No more parting over there;
And forever I will be,
With the One who died for me,
What a day, glorious day that will be.

What a day that will be,
When my Jesus I shall see,
And I look upon His face,
The One who saved me by His grace;
When He takes me by the hand,
And leads me through the Promised Land,
What a day, glorious day that will be
