“We had another bell ringer show for church this Sunday. They also went to the altar to pray. We then whet to the mall where we help our annual Road Dog motorcycle toy run where over $40,000 of toys were donated to the Army. God is blessing the Billings Corps In so many ways.”

“Traveling in SE Alaska is always an adventure. However, this week was a little more of an adventure than usual for three of Angoon's residents who were in Anchorage for a School Board function when the earthquake hit. Everyone was ok, but shaken. I had the opportunity to pray with one of the ladies as we traveled by ferry back to Angoon on Saturday. Just a reminder of how we are all part of each other, no matter how many miles separate us.”

“This week I brought the Word at GRM and was blessed to sit, talk and pray with 4 guys who are struggling, feeling defeated and looking to God. What a blessing to be used to speak to them and pray with them. ”

“At the beginning of this week, bitter cold temperatures and snow were predicted for Saturday. We prayed everyday asking the Lord to please provide good weather. JESUS answered the prayers of many. We had good weather on Saturday and 58 volunteers ring for us. Glory to GOD! As a way of participating in the "I'll Fight Day," Broomfield Corps young people rang the bell to raise money for our Red Kettle Campaign. God is always good! ”

“Attended the annual Sheridan Community Holiday Dinner Sunday night and helped serve special needs guests their meals along with several of our corps volunteers, soldiers, and employees. It was a great turnout. This is not an Army event, but the Army has been a part of it since it's inception. This year we provided 300+ Hallmark bags, a lot of our surplus toys, and some candy. I had ample opportunity to mingle and hear people's stories. i was talking with a table of veterans and one of them pulled out the business card of Steve Staneart and explained that he was an adherent of the Grand Junction, CO corps. His name is Howard, and he is spending some time in Sheridan at a VA Recovery Center. I got his story from Steve and will follow-up to keep him connected to the Army. It was a great night. I posted photos on my Facebook. ”

“Another full Christmas week! Our new Women's Book Club is a small but faithful group, and they have enjoyed an extra time of fellowship during this cold, dark season. We have started our Advent Series 'Twas the Night Before Christmas', using classic Christmas carols to consider the perspectives of those who were anticipating Christ's birth. Although we know many of our congregation leave for family this week, we are looking forward to celebrating with those who will be staying behind!”
