Joshua said to them,
“Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.
Be strong and courageous.
This is what the LORD will do to all the enemies you are going to fight.”

Operation Christmas Child
During 2020, despite the pandemic, 9,113.853 “shoeboxes” were packed. The boxes from Kentwood have previously gone to countries such as Mexico, Haiti, Ecuador, and A Hard to Read Area, but in 2020 our boxes went to Cameroon, Mali, and Burkina Faso. Monday and Tuesday, David and I packed the first 75 of our pencil bags for our 2021 boxes. I wonder where God has chosen to send our boxes in 2021 . . . .
Today’s Prayer Focus – Students
No matter the age of our students, preschool through college, it seems many are having virtual classes. Pray for motivation of the students and for the parents as they monitor their children. Pray also for endurance in these difficult days. Lastly, pray for good results, knowledge that will be much needed in future days.
I hope you can recognize some of the blessings God has for you today.
