Tis The Season for Giving - Why not Give JESUS

Mount Zion Enid Evans WMS provided a fully cooked Thanksgiving meal with Turkey and all the sides for three families in the Battle Creek Area. The families who received the meals were very appreciative and were so grateful to receive the food.

The Enid Evans WMS also have other events planned for this holiday season including providing candy for all of the Calhoun County Jail inmates for their Christmas gift baskets. Handing out Christmas cards to all person who they visit over the holiday season in the assisted living facilities and nursing homes. Visiting all of the sick and shut-in and the churches care list and giving them poinsettias and Christmas cards for the holiday. Providing 6 families with Christmas dinner baskets which will include either a turkey or ham and all the trimmings and of course desert. And lastly, contacting the local jail to get Christmas wish list for children of parents who are incarcerated and providing a toy for them for the holiday.

Keep these missionaries in your prayers as they spread the love to all and GIVE THE GIFT OF JESUS this Christmas!
