      12/7: Scott and Vanessa Gilbert are coming – from Siberia! The last time we saw Scott, he was raising money at VBS for a playground.  Please welcome them and hear their update at breakfast next Saturday morning at 8:30. We know it’s a busy time of year, but, after all, the whole reason Jesus came was so that His salvation would go out to the far corners of the world, not so that we could stay home and decorate 🙂
