Great quote

Grace and pride are eternal enemies. Pride demands that God bless me in light of my merits, whether real or imagined. But grace will not deal with me on the basis of anything in me, good or bad, but only on the basis of who God is.

Reading Glasses needed

Anyone who would like to donate reading glasses for the slums of Nairobi, please drop them off at the church office! It would be huge for them.  We have a few people going in October to work with Paul and Marcia.  Thanks!

Plumbing/Tiling experience?

I am going to be at Asif Shaik’s place in Lutz next Tuesday (Sept 15) to rip out and install a tub (Asif is one of our supported missionaries).  Anybody with some plumbing background and a penchant for installing tubs or putting down tile is welcome; let me know if you can help. 

Statistics on Poverty

According to the IMF 50% of the world has a standard living less than that of the USA 100 years ago.   The country is going through a rough spot but we are still blessed tremendously.  We need to remember that and continue being generous and remember the source of our blessings! Read Deut. 8:10-20 sometime today as a good reminder.  Remember, it is He who gives you the ability to produce wealth… (v.18)
