LAST DAY TO DONATE FOR CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR PAKISTANI DISCIPLES’ CHILDREN IS TOMORROW
CHECKS MAY BE PUT IN THE HEART BASKET ON THE WELCOME TABLE TONIGHT IN THE COURTYARD FOR THOSE OF YOU DROPPING OFF/PICKING UP CHILDREN FOR MIDWEEK
Thank you for you hearts to help children who are in need. Last year Mollie Mostert began a good work in providing for some of the children’s needs of the disciples in Pakistan. The children there get nothing for Christmas due to the extreme poverty in the area. The money you donate is tax deductible and goes directly for the children through theSouth Asian Mission Society. Please write your check payable to them. There is no way to do this electronically so a check is required. If you can possibly drop the check off at either mine or Dana’s house that would be helpful. If you can’t do that please let one of us know and we will be happy to pick up your check at your house or business. Thank you for your generosity and love for these children.
Your fellow servants,
