What an amazing Christmas Celebration in Palatine on Sunday!!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who helped to make this day so wonderful especially Beth and Sweet Baby Ray (Dave) and their Bible Study friends! The food was delicious and overflowing and people had the best time with smiles and joy all over the room and thank you to everyone who joined us because it was truly a loving and fun family party including generous Christmas gifts and hand-written Christmas cards that were given to each person. There are many people in the world who have more Christmas parties and gifts during this time of year than they know what to do with. But for our friends, this is one of the most special and memorable days of the year because we are their family party and God's love and joy was all over that room!
THANK YOU TO FRIENDS WHO BROUGHT COATS TO US!!! There was a man who came in with only an old sweatshirt on Sunday and had mentioned that he can never find a coat that fits him...but of course as God always works, someone happened to bring in a brand new coat minutes before in his exact size that fit him perfectly and he was so grateful and happy!
