A volunteer text me on Christmas Eve to thank me for being obedient to the 

Lord to expand into Johnston County.  She served on the 21st, our last day

before Christmas.  Her family has experienced many difficult things.  She said

that as she served others and listened to the beautiful good news of the Gospel,

she experienced a fresh understanding of the deep love of God in her own life

and a sweet reminder of His great provision for her.
