 Yesterday, all of the donations were moved into storage and look what happened overnight. And more came in after this! Please keep praying for God to match the amount of gifts to the amount of kids. 

Dear Lord, We thank you and praise you for calling us to help You in this ministry. Each day, it becomes more plain that You are providing donations and the other things we need to make this a fun and encouraging experience for the families we will serve. Thank you for bringing in the "just right" gifts for each child. May we watch and enjoy the way You make it all come together on Saturday. 

In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.

God is the Project Manager!

Last week, Alex Toys in Canton, donated this pile of cartons of toys, New toys! And they have another pile for us to pick up tomorrow.

We had two Moms so excited about shopping for Christmas presents that they came a week early. Don't you love that excitement is building?

Today we got a donation of two pre-lit Christmas trees. One is already set up in the east lobby where shopping will take place. Join us in asking God if there is a family for whom He earmarked it.

Keep watch, God is showing His hand in this ministry!

Dear Heavenly Father, we thank you for the ways, both large and small, that You are showing us that You will make this ministry a success. Help us to step back and watch You work. Please guide us in the final preparations, and help us to fix our hearts to look at this ministry and those we will serve with compassion and encouragement.

We want nothing more than to show Jesus to our guests, through compassion and encouragement. Teach us to do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard our guests as more important than ourselves.

In Jesus' name, we pray, Amen.
