ALL THE DETAILS

A SPECIAL THANK YOU - "We would like to thank all who prayed for our son-in-law while he was in the hospital fighting the virus. We prayed so hard that GOD would let him come home, but that was what GOD had in mind. GOD wanted him home with Him. It was hard for us and sad, but we trusted GOD and whatever comes we will all be ok. I would like to thank the pastors for their phone calls and for praying with us during this time. Without GOD and prayer, what would we do? Thanks again, Nancy and Jim Douglas, our daughter, and the rest of the family."

 

A HUGE THANK YOU - to the church family for supporting Operation Christmas Child packing efforts in 2021 through donations, helping with  projects, attending fundraisers, packing boxes, and prayers. Our final count was 798 boxes. When each box reaches a child and their family/friends, 6,384 people will be presented with the gospel. Praise God!

Becky Vos, Bev Smith and Londa Schnell
