Exciting News to Share!!!


I have been sharing with you for a couple of weeks now about the special challenge that I accepted at my church (Restore Community Church) to multiply my money.
I started with one $10 bill - and wanted to use it to help others!


Actually, my husband joined forces with me - he had a $20 and I had a $10 and
we accepted a challenge to multiply our funds during a 2-week period
in order to help others as the Lord directed us.
We are so happy to report that as of this morning,
together we have been able to collect $475!!
That puts us just $25 short of our goal of $500 -
but I know that the charity we have chosen,
Angel Tree Ministries and Prison Fellowship Ministries will use this money
to bring Glory to God and bless many children's during this Christmas season!


Many heartfelt thanks go to all of our dear friends that have helped us
multiply our money and may God Bless you in mighty ways!


Thank you for your prayers and your generous and giving hearts.
We love you all!!

I just received another $35 and hubs collected another $30 this morning -
which brings us up to $540 total

God is So Good !
