Holiday Bazaar was a Huge Success! Christmas trees were decorated and lit, cider was warm, products from around the world were beautifully displayed. Cashiers and hostesses were in place and Christmas music was playing in the background. And then they came. The Cove was a buzz with shoppers excited to get a jump on their holiday gift-buying. However, this was no ordinary shopping experience, every dollar spent meant a life in a disadvantaged situation was touched! Every item purchased represented a widow, a single-mother, a recovering addict, a persecuted church, an abused teenager. Every item purchased would encourage the poor, the hungry and the oppressed. Who knew shopping could change the world? It did on November 14.
Thank you Canyon Springs Church for being the wallet of Jesus. Your generosity in giving, in spreading the word, in sacrificing your Saturday was used by God to make the day a success. I know He will take the $13,386.50 raised and multiply it greatly in our world. Merry Christmas!
And may the Lord our God show us his approval and make our efforts successful. Yes, make our efforts successful!
(Psalms 90:17 NLT)
