Saturday, September 25th at 6:30pm, George Link and our brothers and sisters from the Burnside Christian Church are holding their Brisket and Fish Fry to benefit OFOP. This is a delicious opportunity to come together for fellowship and food, while helping raise funds for ONE FAMILY ONE PURPOSE’s annual relief build (details on the build to be announced in the coming weeks). Takeout and dine-in will be available for your convenience. We look forward to seeing you there!
The Burnside Christian Church is located at 2088 E, County 2110, Burnside, IL
Please pray for Bonnie Stokke (Mark’s wife). She fell on stairs and broke a few ribs, and she appears to have blood in the chest cavity. She is currently being transferred to Blessing Hospital in Quincy IL.
Thank you for your prayers!
2x4s for Hope is a Christian organization that has provided 2×4’s for some of the OFOP Disaster relief homes built in the past. The organization is planning to build a “tiny home” for a veteran right here in Hancock County! We would love for you to be involved in this great project. The home will be be constructed in Carthage on June 12th and 13th. OFOP’s own George Link is trying to get a small group of five together to take part in this project. If you’d like to be a part of George’s crew, you can reach him at (309)221-8657. We appreciate your consideration!
As many of you know, a few days after this years build, Roy had surgery on his leg to repair some old pins and hardware from an accident years ago. An infection was the greatest danger during his recovery. Tonight he was admitted to the hospital for an infection, fever, chest pains and an elevated heart rate. He may be transported to Springfield to aggressively treat the infection. Please join us in praying for God to remove this infection, and for the entire Day family as they cope with this stress during Christmas. We appreciate your prayer, and trust that the Lord will lay His righteous healing hand on our beloved brother.
“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” — Isaiah 41:10
‘Twas the day before siding the volunteers grunt, every servant was stirring except Brad Hunt. The soffit was hung by Hucke with care, in hopes that a siding crew would soon be there. Brad was nestled all snug in his truck, with visions of chocolate ice cream seeping from the ducts. Roy in his overalls and I in my beard, had just settled our brains after talking to Markie who’s weird. When out of the house arose such a clatter, I sprang from my car to see what’s a matter. When what to my wondering eye did appear, George Link and his coffee all over Stokke’s gear. They wrestled around like Tyson and Jones, while the others stood recording on their smart phones. This build is not perfect, nor the volunteers who work, but one thing is certain, here the Holy Spirit lurks. Merry Christmas from Hamburg!
