Samaritan's Purse

Speaking of...nothing like this, actually. But We're only 5 months away from the last week possible to make your Christmas Shoeboxes. Anyone who has never worked with Operation Christmas Child really ought to. They send packages of toiletries, toys, coloring books, etc oveseas to children who would not otherwise have gifts at christmas. Teri Peterson and I did the program in high school for several years. Think ahead next time you are at Walmart or Costco. Appropriate additions include toothbrushes, washcloths, soap, toothpaste, hairclips, things like that. If you can buy them in bulk and split the items between various boxes, it'll save you some money in the long run. Not that saving money should be your main goal, but we found planning ahead means you could make an extra shoebox or two. And if you're really inspired, why not work with your church to be collection site. The information is on their website. Go check it out. It's a good way to use your surplus tithe!
False alarm. I heard back from the guy who recommended me. He spoke to the director of Marry Me, A Little. He hired someone else yesterday. I'm disappointed, and relieved. The show opens in a week, and runs for four. I don't know how I would have done Drea's wedding and be on call for a show the same night. Just kidding Drea, of course I wouldn't have left your wedding....maybe the reception...

On the positive side, it was very nice to be recommended. And they're "keeping me in mind" for next time. Whatever that means!
