November 2014 Saints Alive
Mission Accomplished! I am back! What a wonderful experience. And you helped make it that way. Thank you for your donations for RICE AND BEANS. On your behalf, 600 pounds of rice and beans were delivered to Villa Cuba, a new gov’t housing area near the city dump (landfill). Villa Cuba residents formerly lived IN the dump but were moved because the nearby river frequently got so high it washed everyone out. The gov’t put up 130 cement brick one room homes moving one family into each home. The homes are painted all combinations of pastel colors. Very interesting. There is electricity and an outhouse for every home—but NO running water. The rice and beans were scooped in to 1-2 pound bags and then one of each was personally delivered to each home by all 19 members of the mission team. It was great to see the appreciation on their faces and the words of thanks for food. Your donations will also be supporting the youth of Shalom Presbyterian and two schools that are dear to my heart. Thank you for being so generous! It was truly appreciated!
Gracias! Kathy Leopold

Begining September 15th, Pastor Charlie has created a list of daily Bible readings for the Congregation and Visitors. They will be linked to that Sunday's Sermon and the Bible study each week. The goal is to provide a convenient way for everyone to read and learn from the Bible. In addition, there will be a question to go with each scripture reading to get you to really think about the reading. The scripture reading and question will be under the "Featured Events" written in Blue.click here for readings up to November 30th
