What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

~Romans 8:31~

Mark your calendar so you will remember the Operation Christmas Child workday at FBC Saturday at 9:00. We will be preparing pencil bags, preparing items to be used in the shoeboxes, etc.

In the last three days, three ladies told me they read The Prayer Link. I did not know that two of them read TPL. Ladies, I appreciate your encouragement. Hopefully, we can all encourage someone as we go about our daily lives.
