I will start with a very current event that is happening tomorrow evening. It is our 2nd annual Comedy Cafe event with John Crist, a very funny comedian. Check out some of his video clips on You tube. We also are having a up and coming country singer, Lexi Wyman sing at the beginning of the event and also after the event during our dessert reception. You can get tickets at http://www.itickets.com
We just completed our fall coat giveaway October 20th. We gave away around 160 coats. We had 18 youth from Bismarck come to help with this event. It was a good experience overall and lots of families that needed coats for this winter are now ready. It was 82 degrees last Friday. Today with windchill it’s around 18…very..very chilly!
We had our first Christmas in July event on July 25th in the park. We had a picnic supper, companies who decorated Christmas trees and had games for kids. Santa Claus was there to take pictures of kids and Kathie and I sang Chrismas carols. We had boxes for churches and people to bring gifts for kids for our upcoming Christmas event. We received 165 gifts. We have enough to cover this event which will be December second, at the Watford City civic center.
November 16th we will be having our Thanksgiving Gathering Place event with turkey and all the trimmings. We invite the folks who have been through our thrift center and been impacted by our ministry. We really look forward to this night of sharing in a meal and fellowship.
Last, but not least, we are in the process of buying the building that we have been renting for the past year. We have the down payment and we are working with a local bank to get this done. We may have an issue with needing flood insurance which is very costly. Please pray with us that it will be something we can afford to pay.
I’m attaching several pictures for you to see of recent events…enjoy!
