Grand Rapids NE, Michigan  – In the Community

I recently inherited from my grandmother a rather large cottage on Lake Geneva. On the way to my law office, I would often stop at the Orland Thrift Center to purchase dish sets, bedroom furniture, sofas, etc. to stock the cottage. The friendly Volunteers there would sometimes greet me as their “best dressed” customer of the day. I purchased so many good quality items there that I think my refurbished cottage might now qualify for that “best dressed” title. – Jason

Grand Rapids NE, Michigan – For World Mission

“It’s amazing how God works in the lives of the children we are ministering to,” says Shirley Santos, who uses Bibles and materials you provide to lead evangelistic outreach among children in the Metro Manila area. “Michael, a second grader and one of eight children was an unruly child. He cursed and bullied other children. Then he attended our Kid’s Camp, where we used the Project Philip booklets. As he memorized verses, Michael changed. He became respectful and helpful. Everyone noticed this great change in Michael—his father even stopped cursing when Michael corrected him! Shirley finishes, “We thank God for you. Through these lessons, God is working in the lives of children!”

Grand Rapids NE, Michigan – In the Center

A lady called and said she had two brand new adult bicycles she’d like to donate. When we got to her garage to pick up the bikes, we noticed a new upright freezer that was still in a crate. We asked if she’d also like to donate that, and she replied, “Yes, I want to park my car there this coming winter.” On our return trip to the Thrift Center, I contemplated the good prices those two bikes and that new Kenmore freezer would bring. And, I couldn’t help but think of the twists and turns our Father in heaven sometimes makes to help us fill the Great Commission – Don
