" you gave me something to eat, you gave me something to drink, you gave me clothes ... You visited me... Matthew 25:36-40. Whatever you did for one of the least of these, you did unto Me."

Operation Help/Hope ministered in these ways this past month: Kid's food bags Manna bag + supplement 50AES, 25AMS weekly. 100 Christmas treat bags filled with apple, orange, tangerine, candy bar, gum, peppermint stick with story, a Christian ornament in a christian inspired bag that kids could appreciate These bags to AES, AMS, Tiny Tots and foster children. Shelf stable milk and cereal bowl added to Manna's weekly bag. Clothes and accessories for AHS choir. Clothes, shoes, Bibles, cross necklaces, health and beauty products, for two AMS girls in need. Lighted nativity scenes plays Christmas carols given to principals; reminding them they are the light of Jesus to children at AES and AMS. Gift card to Manna's Joe transportation coordinator, always ready, willing and able to help Andrews children.

This could not have been done without Laura & Terry Postell, Dorcas Brooks, Becky Brown from Little Brasstown, Dolly Rice, Helen & Frank Wilson, Rebecca Hoilman, Dr. & Mackie Garland , Dr. Lynn Taylor, Ray Loudermilk @ Spud's Produce, Second Baptist, Andrews First Baptist, Junaluska, Beaver Creek, and  Rowland's Creek. Giving God the glory for the privilege and opportunity to be a part of this community ministry.

On a personal note, Operation Help/Hope took on a new meaning for me this December. Having cataract surgery in two weeks time, I was unable to drive for 18 days. So having Joyce Hogan and Helen Wilson "visit" me-  running errands, delivering food, drink, clothes,  gifts was such a help and blessing.

Thank you's received from AHS choir and Jennifer Farr, AES, AMS principals,

Thank you to Nancy Huffines for remembering our five Pampering & Prayers middle schoolers with tins filled with candy.

Looking forward to serving together in Jesus' name in the Andrews community.
