Thanksgiving Eve

Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song. 

 For the LORD is the great God, the great King above all gods.

~Psalm 95:2-3~


Rob Anderson had surgery Tuesday.  Shiela Wilson Anderson was able to get out of Boston Wednesday, but missed Rob’s surgery.  Thankfully, all went well with the surgery.  Pray for Rob as he recovers.



Pray for the mission team from Montpelier Baptist Church as they continue to serve on the mission field this week.



There will be NO Friday Morning Bible Study this week due to the holiday.



Working the collection week for Operation Christmas Child was a real blessing.  An unexpected blessing was to meet some daily readers of The Prayer LInk. That is always special to me.  I appreciated each of you who read and pray.  Another blessing was when a man arrived from a distance away from Kentwood.  He was delivering a shoebox his wife had packed and wanted to be sure it was sent.

I cannot say enough about the people from FBC, Kentwood who came and worked.  At times, we all worked hard, but we also had times when we sat and visited. as we waited for the next delivery.  It was an opportunity to get to know our own people a little better.  That was a blessing too!

Volunteer at a Processing Center

Millions of shoeboxes are collected during National Collection Week. Before these special gifts can bring hope and joy to children around the world, each one has to be carefully inspected and made ready for overseas shipment by volunteers like you. You can help prepare shoeboxes for delivery by volunteering at one of our eight processing centers across the United States. About 80,000 volunteers serve annually at our processing centers.

We have opportunities at the processing centers for volunteer groups of all sizes. You can volunteer as an individual or with family and friends.


You can read more about the process, see the sites for packing, and select the dates that fit your schedule.  You can go as an individual or a part of a team.

This is a goal of mine I hope to achieve one day.  Please let me know if you get to go and what you think.  I have talked to other friends who have gone.  They highly recommend it!


Read the Bible – I Thessalonians 5 & Psalm 17


Be sure to celebrate this holiday with thankfulness in your heart. Use this day to begin to make your list of blessings this morning.
