You are my strength; come quickly to help me.

Today, please join me in thanking God for a great buy David made yesterday for Operation Christmas Child. God was there first and prepared a man to give David a fantastic deal on composition books and folders. We have enough to add to our boxes this year and plenty to save for next year. They are still in the car to be unloaded later today. We are amazed and thankful for the bargain God provided!

Many “shoebox” packers get bargain deals. We are thankful for each one because the purchases help people fill boxes that later become an opportunity for a child to learn about Jesus and take Him into their lives. The child will share with his family and many more people will have this most wonderful opportunity. Workers and managers in stores play an important part in the process.

Please join us in thanking God for the fantastic purchase He provided yesterday.
