Over the weekend, several youth participated in the 30 Hour Famine and raised over $325 for World Vision. They also delivered food boxes to needy families in the community and picked up trash in the neighborhood.
It’s quickly nearing auction day! Here are just a few of the donated comforters and quilts we’ll be selling. To preview more items and get all of the auction details, click here: Aim Right Auction Website.
In addition to the auction on Saturday, we’ve added a tasty, toe-tappin’ event on Friday evening. Make plans to join us! All auction items will be available for preview on Friday from 3:00-8:00 p.m.
I want to give praise to God for a “divine appointment” He orchestrated this past Tuesday. As I approached the final stop on my Kids Klub visitation route, I noticed a car pull up in front of the house. The driver happened to be the Older Sister of the children who live in the house. Years ago, she was active in coming to Teen Night and Bible study, but I’d lost touch with her when her parents split up and moved out of the community. Mom and the younger children are now living in the area again, but Older Sister still lives further away.
In our brief conversation, I could tell that Older Sister has some regrets. She realizes that she “needs God in her life.” She “wants to move back, start going to church again.” And she’s been down quite a road; it’s never easy when your parents divorce.
While we stood on the sidewalk, I prayed for her — that she would realize that God can give her a new start, that He will forgive.
She said she needed that.
Isn’t it a good reminder for us all? Go to God for a fresh start.
“The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in mercy. He will not always strive with us, nor will He keep His anger forever. He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor punished us according to our iniquities. For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward those who fear Him. As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.” Psalm 103:8-12
