Dear Christians Friends, 

I want to express my love and appreciation to all of you for your faithfulness to help with the Donna Pittman Toy Store each Year. God is so Good. Not once in our 10 years of service has He ever let us down. Each year as we prepare for the toy store, we never know how hard some families struggle.  As they come in, we learn details of their lives and, some are devastating. It is wonderful to have the Counselors and wives that work on this day. They take time and opportunity to speak with the families, and listen to their hearts, but most of all, they witness to these families and have the opportunity to offer them Christ. What a blessing this is for everyone. We had 10 people to accept our Lord and Savior this Christmas Season. You all helped to put Christ back in Christmas with your love and support though new toys, monetary donations, prayers, providing snacks and volunteering to serve. We had 32 bikes of all sizes and all kinds of small riding toys this year. I have to share with you that a family with 2 small boys received a special gift [a big power wheels truck}.  The appreciation and the love of this family was overwhelming, Only God can provide such opportunities.  It takes a lot of preparation for this day, and it would not be complete without the help from Youth groups and others that offer to help setup on Wednesday night before opening the doors on that Saturday. Special thanks to Mt. Zion's Youth group and Pastor Landon's young teen group from Lee Park. I personally want to thank Jean and Bessie for all of their help and most of all, the Association for providing us a wonderful place to serve the Lord. You helped to provide Christmas for 72 families and 213 children this year. Out of the 213 children, 115 were teenagers ranging from 12 to 17 years old. There were items left over, and we donated to Manna From Heaven, a Christian organization right here in Union County, and also to Philadelphia Baptist Church for mission projects that both of these have the opportunity to witness for Christ. Once again, I want to say thank you all…each and every church for everything you did to help make this another successful year. Hope to see you all in 2017.

 

God Bless You All
