[The Birth of Jesus Foretold]

In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David.

The virgin’s name was Mary.

The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”

~Luke 1:26-28 (NIV)~




Last night I tracked some of the shoeboxes FBC sent.  I learned some went to Mexico, Haiti, Ecuador, and some went to “Hard to Reach Areas”.  That last area had never appeared on my list before, so I did some research.  This is what I found.

You can go to the following site to learn more about hard to reach areas.

This excites me.  I pray the boys and girls who receive the shoeboxes will learn about and accept Jesus into their hearts.



Jimmy Williams is to be released from the hospital today with surgery scheduled for next Wednesday.  Please pray for Jimmy and Linda.

Ok, I just got the word on Jimmy’s
open heart surgery. He will be discharged tomorrow and we will have to come back early, next Wednesday the 19th and surgery will be at 7 am. We cannot thank all of you enough for your thoughts and prayers. 
This will be the 2nd time he’s gone through this. The first was almost 10 years ago.
