Good Folks, it is Friday, October 9, 2015. The last three Sundays have been a whirlwind of activities for me, my family and several others that had the opportunity to go to Panama with Project 3.7.
My niece got married a few weeks ago and the Alegria clan had the blessing there to celebrate that grand event. It was an opportunity for all of the siblings to be with my mom as well. These moments are precious and few.
The Container—Project 3.7— is now operational in Santiago, Panama.Seven of us: Betty & Weymond Dunn, Elaine & Allen Schneider, Sue Clark, Dianne Skinner and myself had the opportunity to travel the 4,000 mile trip and see firsthand the phenomenal opportunity that Project 3.7 will have in that part of Panama.
The United Methodist missionaries—David and Cindy Ceballos—have forged great relationships with the people in the surrounding areas as well as the health community. What has been developed is a partnership for spiritual and medical care. I could never be so proud of the church for taking on this endeavor that will have countless blessings to so many folks. I took some 900 pictures of the sights, sounds and fauna, since Panama is most like a rainforest country. Orchids were in bloom as weeds are here during the spring. It was a blessing to go and represent the church. Thank you. See the story of Project 3.7 on our Facebook here:
This Sunday is Miracle Sunday. Our Campus Revival Capital Campaign goal is $500,000. Please remember to bring your pledge cards/gifts to church this Sunday during the morning worship times. I believe that God, through everyone’s generosity, will bless First United Methodist Church of Duncanville in a miraculous way. My sermon will be about Jesus and Miracles. I invite you to read Mark 5:21-34 before Sunday. I invite you to pray on how God can continue to undergird the ministry of the church, and pray how God will bless you to be about what he is doing in the community. Set your heart to God’s.
Exciting times are ahead. It is a joy to be here and see great and marvelous things happening.
To parents with children that have a coin bank: Bring it to church this Sunday. I will have an extra one during Children’s Moments for the kids to participate.
PS: I had the opportunity to see the Panama Canal. Wow!
