It’s Friday and that means it’s Friday Inspiration!
1. Operation Christmas Child. Processing centers around the country are now taking reservations for those willing to serve by packing boxes for world-wide distribution. It is a wonderful blessing for teens (must be 13 years and up) and adults to serve at a processing center. The above world map photo was taken last year at the Atlanta processing center. It shows all the locations this one center supplies packed shoeboxes to around the globe.
2. Looking for a good pencil sharpener for the kiddos homework? After spending $100 in one year on a variety of electric sharpeners that all broke (one the same day it was bought) I went old-school. You know what, it’s still working great after two years.
3. Udi’s Gluten-Free Hamburger Buns. Pricey compared to regular buns, however they are a wonderful treat for those who are gluten-free. Since I am the only one who eats gluten-free in my household, I keep them in the freezer. When we grill burgers I pull one out and let it thaw on the counter. My only complaint is the buns are huge, much bigger than a normal bun.
4. Revolution in World Missions. Gospel for Asia founder, K.P. Yohannan, is offering two books for free on GFA’s website. If you want to learn more about the power of missions, order your copy. (Scroll down on the site – the free book offer is on the lower right-hand side.)
