October is our month to support the effort to reach children all over the world with a shoebox packed with items that they need and can use. At the same time they receive the shoebox, they will receive the gospel message of Jesus Christ. This ministry is well carried out by Franklin Graham's Organization Samaritan's Purse. We have been participating with them for a number of years now. So this month, pick up a shoebox (or several) at the church and fill it with pencils, paper, crayons, balls, etc. Knowing that they will hear the good news about Jesus when they receive it. Rufus and Velma Stevens have taken the leadership with this ministry at AWBC, and we thank them for all they are doing.
His is a life worth remembering ... twice over! The rest of Louis Zamperini's unbelievable true story is now on the big screen, UNBROKEN: PATH TO REDEMPTION. Following his return as an unbroken war hero, Louie's life was filled with haunting memories of his time as a P.O.W. A quest for revenge left him nearly broken. On the brink of divorce with a husband who had become a drunkard, Cynthia Zamperini was invited to Billy Graham's 1949 Los Angeles Crusade, where she found faith in Christ and a renewed commitment to her marriage and her husband. Her most fervent prayer became for God to help Louie find the peace and forgiveness he so desperately needed. Very reluctantly, he attended one night and Billy Graham pointed him toward the forgiveness, redemption, and amazing grace that we all need to find.
Nell Rose and I saw it the other day as did Reba Bradshaw and Mary Renegar. This movie reminds us that Christ can change lives still today. Go see it!
Several months ago now, Cindy Hamil, daughter of Billy and Peggy Roberts, put a fresh face on our Alta Woods Website. We think it is really nice. Thank you, Cindy, for a beautiful job!
