Oh, the Christmas season is flying by much too fast!!! The final countdown to the big day is on and we have a weekend full of special activities at the Rescue Mission and church ahead. Today is the feast and gift distribution for the homeless guests at the Rescue Mission, tomorrow our family will enjoy a morning celebration with the residents at the Bethel House and a sweet candlelit Christmas Eve service at church in the evening and then our Christmas day will include church again in the a.m. & the annual “President’s Turkey Bowl” with the men’s program residents in the afternoon!!! Oh yeah, and we’ll manage to squeeze in some gift opening at some point. Ha Ha
