Teach Us to Number Our Days

 

   

Merry Christmas!

 

For unto us a child is

born, unto us a son is given: 

and the government shall

be upon his shoulder:

and his name shall be called

Wonderful,

Counsellor,

the mighty God,

the everlasting Father

the Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9:6

The Annual Men and Boy's Bake Auction for Missions is just a clever way to have fun, enjoy the sweet treats and then send all the proceeds to benefit Missions.  Last year, the proceeds went  toward our Belize Team as they headed for the south to help our missionaries, Don and Debbie Whitecar.   This year, the proceeds benefited our missionaries, Bruce & Provi Martin, our missionaries in Mexico.  There's a tremendous opportunity to share the Gospel via radio there, and these funds will help build the tower and establish a station there.  
 
Our guys tweak their recipes anticipating high bids (which they usually get), to surpass the previous year's goal.  Oh the delicious concoctions that have been made! Oh the calories that we ignore!  The Most Creative, The Highest Bid Item and The Most Unusual are a few of the categories highly sought after.
 
The kids are never left out. There are always things either made by them or just for them to bid on, starting at one dollar.
 
Auctioneer Doug Jellel does a superb job of announcing each tasty entry and getting those wallets emptied out.
