August Mission Opportunity


                 *School Supplies for filling backpacks at BSE     AND             

 *Coloring books & crayons for Children’s Pediatric Floor of Local Hospital

Children and Pre-K Pals are collecting school supplies to fill backpacks for the food closet, and for the Boiling Springs Elementary children who will not have supplies or a bookbag.  Their fall project includes collecting items for the pediatric children’s floor at the hospital.  They hope to fill many Happy Bags with items that children patients can use to entertain themselves.  We welcome contributions and/or any donations you would like to make toward these two projects.

Thank you as always for the support and encouragement.

Please pray that we will be flexible in all our mission endeavors and exemplify the spirit of Christ in all we do.

Please pray that the good news of God’s love through Jesus Christ can be seen and heard through our work and our words.

Pray for the missionaries (Roger and Vicki Grossman) and the ongoing work of the Good Shepherd Orphanage and Medical Clinic as they seek to minister and share God’s love among the Quiche people of Guatemala.
