....... I-IOGANSVIIX,E HOME NEWS -THURSDAY, OCTOBER 12 2000 Church H, ;lps 'Operation Christmas Child' By Patti Phillips Once again, this year Hogansville First Baptist Church is a participant in Operation Christmas Child, which is a ministry of Samaritan's Purse. Rev. Franklin Graham, son of Dr. and Mrs. Billy Graham, is President of Samaritan's Purse. Samaritan's Purse is a non- profit Christian relief and evangelism organ- ization. All gifts are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law. Samaritan's Purse is a mem- ber of the National Association of Evangelicals, the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability, and the Association of Evangelical Relief and Development Organizations. Last year, our church turned in 195 shoe boxes filled for needy children in many impov- erished areas. Boxes were prepared by church members and others. In total, there were more than 55,700 churches and organizations with 21,700 volunteers as participants in this worthy endeavor. Over 3.1 million shoe boxes were collect- ed and given in more than 70 countries includ- ing Honduras, Kosovo, Romania, Jordan, Vietnam, Bosnia and Lebanon to name a few. This is a unique opportunity to share the gospel overseas and to show God's love to these children for whom this filled shoe box is the only gift they will receive. Christian literature is included in the boy or girl's language with each shoe box. What a wonderful mission opportunity to share the real meaning of Christmas, the birth of Jesus. This is an ideal project for all ages. Shoe boxes were distributed October 4th and 8th at the church by Helen Stephens and Mary Kathryn Gillespie and must be returned no later than November 8th. A total of 105 boxes have been received and more are available if needed. Unity Baptist Church at Newnan is this area's distribution center with Mrs. June Keeble, chairman. Begin Christmas early by picking up your shoe box, filling it with needed items and $5 for shipping/handling costs, checks only please. Place an envelope with the check on top and place a rubber band around the box and lid. If you would like, you may enclose a note to the child receiving your shoe box and a photo of yourself or your family. Include your name and address. The child who receives the shoe box may write you. Ages for the shoe boxes are: boy 2-4 years old; 5-9 years old; and 10-14 years old; girls 2- 4 years old; 5-9 years old; and 10-14 years old. Decide if this is for a boy or a girl and the ages and then cut it out of the brochure includ- ed with your shoe box and tape it to the top of your box. Needed items are: toys: small cars, balls, dolls, stuffed animal, plastic kazoos, har- monicas, yo-yos, small Etch-A-Sketch, toys that light up or make noise, with extra batter- ies, Slinky, etc. School supplies: pens, pencils and sharpener, crayons or markers, stamps and ink pad sets, coloring books, writing pads or paper, solar calculators, etc. Hygiene items: toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, comb, washcloth, etc. Other: hard candy, lollipops, mints, gum, sunglasses, flashlights with extra batteries, ball caps, socks, T-shirts, toy jewelry sets, hair- clips, watches, small picture books, etc. Do not include the following items: toy guns, knives or war-related items, chocolate or perishable items, liquids of any kind (sham- poo, lotion, bubbles, etc.), used items, medi- ines o any kind (vitamins, cough drops, etc.) and breakable items (mirrors, china dolls, etc.). This project is not just for Hogansville First Baptist Church as anyone who would like a shoe box may receive one.. HARWF00, BROWN & ARNALL, P.C.

Keep in mind pumpkins can be a nutritious addition to your fall meal. Low in fat and sodi- um, pumpkin is an excellent source of potassium. Pumpkins belong in the group of yellow or orange vegetables famous for their large amounts of vitamin A. One-half cup of cooked pump- kin provides more than the rec- ommended daily allowance of vitamin A. If you're planning on cook- ing with pumpkin, get the small- er "sugar or pie" variety rather than the larger "jumbo or field" ones used for making jack o- lanterns. Pumpkins can be stored at home in a cool, dry, well-venti- lated place. If you plan to store them for a month or more, be sure they are unbruised and when you're ready to cook, halve or quarter the pumpkin, remove the seeds and portions, and cut intO [ either before, during cooking; however, it ier to take off during as it loosens. Then, cover with a amount of boiling to 30 minutes and pumpkin is a use only enough to prevent ,. . pumpkin is drain the pumpkin in a drain a second time for 30 minutes to remove liquid.
