Operation Christmas Boxes:  Thank you all who supported the mission for this month to help with the transport costs for the boxes.  We have a bin at each site for you to put in items for the boxes.  Take time to have a look and read as there are some patterns and suggestions of items:   to wear,   to play with,  for school,  to love,       that’s special  for personal hygiene.

If you want to fill in your own box there are also boxes at each site to take. The final date for items and return of completed boxes is the Sunday 14 October so we have time to collate and deliver to the depot. For further information contact Judith  Ph 688 6004.

Christian Superstore—102 Stafford Street, Timaru: “Another month has gone and we are now preparing ourselves to enjoy the Summer months. Whether this be relaxing on a beach, sharing in the beauty of Creation or being called to the garden by the  ever growing weeds. Next years Calendars have arrived. The ever favourite (post able) New Zealand Bible Gems ($9.99) show the mountainous region that New    Zealand is. Hebraic Calendars that reveal the Jewish year from September 2018 to December 2019 are also revealing the beauty of the Israeli culture.

We have been inundated with Journals. These are a great way to reflect and  meditate on the beauty of God’s Word for us individually. These Journals range from $16.99 to $24.99 in various sizes and colours.  May your days ahead be blessed and rejoicing in the Power of who God is.”

Giving  Everything that we have is a gift from God.
