For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way for the wicked leads to destruction.
Pray for Bill Frazier today. He is having neck surgery at 1 P.M today at OLOL in Baton Rouge. Your prayers will be greatly appreciated.
I’ve had updates on Carol B. Sealey and Carl “Chicken” Gaines. They are both improving.
Disaster relief response update
Yesterday, I had the opportunity to do some more shopping for Operation Christmas Child. I’m so excited to get all these items from the trunk and start to prepare and organize them for the “shoeboxes”.
Yesterday, someone gave me money to spend on fishing items. That was done too.
Some of the items I was able to purchase were school crayons, highlighters, small toys, flashlights, craft supplies, soap, dishcloths, pencil sharpeners, large erasers, pens, pencils, marbles, eating utensils, craft felt. scissors. plastic tablecloths, and pencil holders.
I had a great time buying these items and will have a good time working with them in the coming days. I have to get busy now, so the shoeboxes can be ready for November collection. Don’t miss out on the joy of “shoeboxes”!
If you want to pack your own shoeboxes, let me know. I will have them ready for you Sunday morning. If you want to shop and turn in items for us to pack together, you can drop your items off at the church office or the classroom next to the choir room. If you want to donate you can give through the offering at church and labeling your donation to “OCC” or “shoeboxes”. If you want me to shop for you, I’ll do that and give you a copy of the receipt.
There are many ways to get involved. The main thing is that you “get involved” and pray for the boys and girls who will receive the shoebox gifts and an opportunity to learn about Jesus. That is the main reason for “shoeboxes”!
