Denny and Michelle - Ask God to fill Denny and Michelle with the knowledge of His will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that they may live lives worthy of the Lord and please Him in every way. May they bear fruit in every good work, grow in the knowledge of God, and be strengthened with all power according to His glorious might so that they may have great endurance and patience as they minister for God’s kingdom (Colossians 1:9-11).
Evangelical Friends Mission Christmas Catalog
As we remember the gift of Christ's birth, you can celebrate with a gift to help our neighbors all over the world. Though we cannot be with them physically, a gift allows you to partner and share some of your God-given resources. May the Lord use these gifts to draw us closer to our neighbors and to himself!

Quote for the Week

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds in Christ."
- 2 Corinthians 1:3-5 (NIV)
