Needs are big out there. I heard that there were 143 calls for Christmas help after the local program had its’ cut off date for toy help. We’ve talked to parents who are in tears this year because they have been unemployed and can’t give anything to their kids for Christmas.

We want to thank a group at Xcel Energy and Mohagen Hansen Architectural Group for adopting some of our R&R families for the holidays. Deliveries are being made and it is a joy to see the blessings take place! We are still praying for financial support to move ahead with the clothing closet/space expansion.

Our first official newsletter went out this week. Please let us know if you did not receive one and would like one mailed to you. As the Christmas Season is well under way, added activities and obligations mount.

Many talk of their pressure to get it all done and are to the point where they are looking forward to having it over. As I ponder this reality it saddens me. I pray that we can intentionally stop and be “still and know He is God”. Then CELEBRATE HIM intentionally for what He IS and came here for.

Merry Christmas!   Ronda Oliver – Director
