Back to school bash

Tonight was one of those nights when you know that God has been glorified! When you know the smiling faces and the squeals of delight from the children reached the ears of the Lord. His Church loved and provided book bags and school supplies for 92 from Countryside children in his name. They went over and beyond purchasing big sturdy bags, providing all on the list, and adding extra touches to show that they care. In many were candy, body products, and Bibles. They wrote notes of encouragement and love! They cooked hotdogs and cake! Many came and handed the bags to that child while giving a hug and encouragement!
Tonight was also a recognition of Hannah Mae Sims… an intern at The Connection. Hannah will be leaving for North Greenville in a week! Her time of service here has not ended but will be different. Hannah has left us in good hands. She discipled Lauren Steen who completed this summer an internship at The Connection! God blessed me this summer with these two precious servants of our Lord and I look forward to the school year with Lauren by my side!
Thank you Church members who sponsored a child!! Thank you Homework Helpers for finding sponsors for each child! Thank you Cookie for a beautiful and delicious cake! Thank you Second Baptist Youth for delicious grilled hotdogs and chips! Thank you Punkys for the lemonade! And thank you Father God for you provision, your patience, your love, your grace, and your sacrifice for this community!
