Merry Christmas to all of our Orphans, Widows, Workers, and Pastors… I know that it is a little bit early to think about Christmas. But here we are, preparing a 40-foot container filled with humanitarian goods and practical things such as medical, food, clothing, tents, tarpaulin, and hundreds of specially prepared gift boxes for our orphans, as we share Christmas Dinners in different locations. And we always share the glad story of the birth of our Savior, and give an opportunity for them to accept Christ. After
65 wonderful years of devoting full-time in Ministry as a teacher, evangelist, educator, counselor, and missionary, I look towards my 90th year, and I can still smile as I feel I am in the perfect will of God, doing what I have enjoyed and been called to do. The best compliment I have ever had during these 65 years of ministry and travel, has been to hear someone say “I saw Jesus in you today.” Someone with ‘poor eyesight’ can look at you or I and say “Oh, you look as good as ever!” In my mind, I say “No! That is not a true statement.” But growing older – we don’t look the same, but we can let His light shine through us. In the picture above, I hold in my hands a Christmas box, the generous person who prepared this designated it for a young man in our orphanages. I was so pleased that he brought this early to be included in our container. Others are thinking ahead as well, such as the Flag Springs Church in St. James, MO – who are preparing a large number of these Christmas Boxes for boys, girls, widows, and workers in our orphanages and care. And they will make certain we have these in our possession by October 15th, thereafter the Christmas Container will depart for Haiti. Another lovely congregation – The Assembly of God Church in Red Cloud, Nebraska is also preparing a van-load of these Christmas Shoeboxes. And Family of God Church here in Topeka are also preparing boxes, and many of our supporters have brought in gifts as well. We encourage you to be a part of this special project that my dear wife, Mary, started 53 years ago. It was one of her greatest joys to bring smiles and the “Good News” to the children of Haiti. There is still time to get involved. If you are unable to prepare a box for these orphans, perhaps you would like to help us ship the container by donating financially, any amount will be a blessing.

The Time is Now! Help Now In Preparation for Thousands of Christmas Dinners…We are counting on you! Rice must be purchased early, so that we may feed thousands of orphans, widows, and street children. We cannot disappoint these little ones. Your gift in any amount will help make a difference. These children have suffered from earthquakes, hurricanes, and so many have never
had a true mother and father in their lives. Together, we can make this happen!
