“Behold, I will create new heavens and a new earth.
The former things will not be remembered,
nor will they come to mind.
~Isaiah 65:17 NIV~
God is still working in Jadon’s life. He has now been SEIZURE FREE for THREE YEARS! I thank God for this miracle and the testimony his family is so free to share. I got to give his mother another hug Sunday and watch Jadon at play for a couple minutes. God has been so faithful to this family as they have been faithful to Him!
Continue to pray for Koltyn and his family. They have received a tremendous amount of prayer and financial support from their friends and community. I thank God for all those you are praying and working for this special cause.
Please remember Mrs. Hazel Smith in your prayers. She’s scheduled for surgery Monday in Hammond.
Please also remember Mr. Bobby Lawson in your prayers. He is at home.
Check out the Operation Christmas Child Facebook page to see photos of children around the world as they receive their “shoeboxes”. Read the stories and have your heart blessed.

You, as individuals or groups, will have the opportunity for the next ten months to bring suggested items for the shoeboxes that will be packed at the for 2015. Check out the OCC center in the fellowship hall at church. Take the first step by selecting a bag. Fill it as indicated and return it within the month of January.
