following the life path that he has cleared,
watching the signposts,
walking at the pace and rhythms
he laid down for our ancestors.”

Week one of our Operation Christmas Child focus is changing into week two. I trust you have/will donate money or the suggested item for your class/age group. You have all month to contribute as the Lord leads you. Don’t try to reach for a certain number. Just do what God leads you to do. It’s not about us! It’s about the recipients of the shoeboxes and their introduction to Jesus. How important is that to you? This is one way we can all be missionaries! I’m thankful to say that David is feeling stronger now and has been helping me shop and open packages for OCC. We both love this opportunity and make it a twelve month per year project at our house. Get involved and get excited! Think of the children and their families who will be impacted by out “shoeboxes”!
Have a great Lord’s Day!
“May [God] keep us centered….”
