Simple things can go a long way… Happy meal toys & Reusable shopping totes

For the most part, many of us in the United States would view a happy meal toy & a reusable shopping tote as simple. They are simple to obtain, they are simple to use and they are simple items. But what may be simple to us… may not be so simple to others in third-world countries.

How often have you bought a happy meal and a duplicate toy is in your child’s bag? If this happens to you, please don’t throw them away but save them for our mission trips. These toys are typically small in size and a great item to bring along with us on a trip.

Reusable shopping totes are also an item that we can use. These totes are more durable than plastic bags and fit in a suite-case just perfectly. From now on, if you are given an extra tote at a conference, at a hotel or at an event and you have no need for them, please consider donating them to our mission team.

Thank you all for your love, support and prayers. We are extremely excited to see God moving in Hardee County and around the world!
