“We have this treasure from God,
but we are like clay jars that hold the treasure.
This shows that the great power is from God,
not from us.”
~2 Corinthians 4:7 (NCV)~

Masks and gloves will be worn. Social distancing will be practiced. Information can be shared “paperless” using your phone. You never have to leave your vehicle.
Thankfulness- Day 16
Today, I am thankful for Operation Christmas Child and all those who give so needy children in many countries can be blessed with a box of hygiene items, toys, and school supplies. It is usually the only gift they have ever received. Best of all, they will have an opportunity to learn about Jesus. Today, individuals, groups, and churches will begin to turn the boxes in so they can begin their trip to the destination points. I’m thankful for all the people who share their love and God’s love this way. What a blessing it had been to David and me to participate for many years. It is our greatest mission field!

Today, as we get closer to thanksgiving, find a way to bless someone. I was always taught it was better to give than to receive. Thankfully, many of you were taught that too. Ir is certainly one of the greatest lessons I ever learned!
