I want to remind you that our annual Christmas Banquet is just around the corner! We are only 17 days away from this special event!
Invitations are being taken to ladies all over our city (and in other surrounding towns, as well); special music is being practiced, and this year our church choir is presenting a special Christmas drama/cantata; corsages have been made, to be worn by our guests of honor ("First Ladies" of our city...former mayors' wives, as well as the mother and wife of the present mayor). There are many details yet to be taken care of.
One of the things Mom does every year is to buy a Bible for the first-time "First Ladies." This year, she is buying 5 Bibles. Every "First Lady" who has attended a Banquet in the past 14 years has received a nice Bible.
Our present mayor's wife's name is Martha, and his mother's name is Dolores. Please pray that these ladies will be able to attend, and hear the Word of God preached that night.
If you would like to help with the purchase of a Bible, or if you would like to give an offering toward this banquet (there are other expenses that still need to be covered), please send me a note.

Please pray with us that all the details will come together; pray that the name of our Lord will be glorified, and that as our Saviour is lifted up, He will draw these dear ladies unto Himself.
