If you've joined Evergreen in the desire to raise $200 by appealing to 'your people' to GIVE, then be faithful to finish the job. [I'm talking to myself here, too! I'm not done raising my $200.] And make sure you invite your people to join you in the packing of the food, in February. Your people, honestly, would LOVE to do this. Be strong and courageous. The battle is not yours, it's the Lord's.
And pray the 'Africa prayer' , by inserting the name 'Haiti.' God Help Haiti. Pray it often. It's easy. When your thoughts turn to Haiti, send up a 'God Help Haiti.' James 5: 16 says, "The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results." It's true. As Nike says, "Just DO it." God Help Haiti! And God help us raise $200 each, and get our people to Evergreen to help us pack. Just imagine what a wonderful manifold effect it would have on your people. Imagine. It could be life-changing.
TO GOD BE THE GLORY! What a great God, that He lets us...He invites us, to join HIM in what He's doing on this earth. It's truly humbling. Rock on!

After Christmas clearance! Gotta love it! My son came home the other day with a find he was proud of: a darling burnt wood Tic Tac Toe game, coffee-table sized. The perfect stocking stuffer cried out: "Run to Starbucks now, and buy five, for all those parties next year, where you're asked to bring a White Elephant gift."
Really, do your shopping now, for all those stocking stuffer, white elephant needs you'll have. There are gems galore, just waiting for you. Just make sure your storage closet is big enough, or that you have enough storage bins. Or better yet: run to Home Depot, or The Container Store and be a good boy/ girl scout, and be prepared.
