TGIF - Together Growing In Faith, along with Bill & Megan Doolittle are humbled by the support our church family has given as we asked for prayers and donations. Brother David Burkett has given me the vision for the next 5 year building of 10 churches. We are in agreement for 150 sponsors giving $1.00 a day to provide the funds for these churches. We had the privilege to sit in one of those churches on our trip. This year Burkett's have requested instead any kind of $5-$10 Toy for Mexico!!! Brother Harold Burkett will pick them up from the church Nov. 4. Look for the box outside of the youth room for toys to the children in Mexico.
