SIBI SOLAR PLAYERS
Last Sunday’s special contribution for the Solar Mission Players was $2,478.00. Thanks to all who generously gave to this great cause!

THINK ABOUT THIS ….
What cookies would you like to bake for Cherokee Home? Would you rather buy them? The children and staff like either. Just be sure that they will be in the Fellowship Room before Wednesday, December 4th.
We also collect stuffed toys, animals and dolls, before our Holiday Fellowship Meal on December 8th. Those toys (without button eyes or other loose parts) are donated to the Seton Care A Van to give to children who face traumas when treated for their various maladies.

BEAUTIFUL FOOTNOTES

Adventures In Missions

Kaylee Hankins

Our congregation is blessed to help support Kaylee Hankins as she has begun the AIM Program (Adventures In Missions) this fall. What follows is from her recent report as she prepares to consider her preferences and selections of possible mission fields. Please keep Kaylee and her classmates in your prayers. For the elders, Ken D

Heyo!
This month has been so busy. We had finals towards the beginning of this month, and I was sad to end my favorite class. I have learned so much. I have a better understanding of God’s will. And I’m thankful for the teachers who invested their time for us, to prepare us for the harvest. It’s nerve-wracking knowing I will turn in my preferences and selections for my field and my team on October 30th, for it will determine the next couple of years of my life. I will admit, I’m a little nervous, but I know God is in full control.

The AIM:
I’m excited for this because the mission field is exactly where our feet are at. We don’t have to leave the country, the state, or our city to begin our mission. It begins with where we are at now, where we have our feet planted. As part of the Body of Christ, we are the hands and feet. We are called to be reaching, searching, and seeking for those who are in need.
Thank you!
I want to say a special thank you to all the Host Families. Without them, none of our trips are possible. Thank you, for those who are reading these. A special thank you for my financial supporters. My monthly support has been so beneficial and a blessing, helping me abundantly. Each of you are such a blessing in my life. Without your constant love, I wouldn’t be in this moment of selection fields and teams. Sticking with me this far gives me more confidence and courage in what we are about to do.
My Prayer:
I ask for continual prayers for my selections because this is an investment of my life, and I’m letting Him lead me as I follow. Pretty soon, I will be sending out more support letters only for one time support. After I receive my field in December, I will send out more letters for monthly support. Many of the fields this year are a little more expensive. I know that God will provide, I just ask for prayers for willing hearts to help support the Great Commission.
