Today was the last day to bring Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes to the church. We finished Maddie’s up by putting a letter and photo in each and bringing them down to the front of the church where we collected them.
This evening our church had a Thanksgiving fellowship supper followed by a Lord’s Supper/Testimony service – we heard from those on our Nicaragua Mission team on the trip they took this week.
This was our first fellowship with Maddie. (smile)
Whoever made this Boston Cream pie… can I just say, “Oh my goodness!”
After church we helped pack up all the shoe boxes to get them ready to move to the next location. We had lots of help, but I was so tickled that Maddie worked as hard as anyone. She has such a sweet heart!
When Maddie first met the Preacher, she was really shy and nervous (she has this response with a lot of men). A couple weeks ago after church when he came in the office, Maddie was acting all nervous again, so I told her, “Hey Maddie, Brother Steve has something for you!” And he took her to our “candy store” (we have a jar of candy in the office) and he gave her a lollipop. Today, every time she saw Steve she grinned really big and said, “That’s Brother Steve!!” You can tell from the picture (above) that she is no longer afraid of him.
