Christmas Cards for our Missionaries …

Geoff & Beckigive cards to Bonnie & Eli Sensenig.  Monica & Cheyenne will deliver them to China when they go to visit in January!  Do NOT mail them to China or Thailand since Geoff & Becki plan to leave China the end January for a year of rest in the States.

Rick Rhodes Family will be returning before Christmas.  You may use their church mailbox for their cards.

Brenda Weaverwill also be at home until mid-January.

When God does not immediately respond to the cries of His children, it is because He wants to accomplish some gracious purpose in their lives. If you are waiting for an answer of some heartfelt petition, don’t become impatient. Commit the matter into the hands of your loving heavenly Father and trust His wisdom.

He who forgets the language of gratitude

is not likely to be on speaking terms with God.

A thankful heart enjoys blessings twice – when they’re received and when they are remembered.
