On The First Day
(singing) On the first day of National Collection Week the good Lord gave to me another great collection victory.
Here's a picture of my minivan last night packed with 350 boxes ready to drop off at the collection center today. All over the country similar minivans loaded with boxes have been pulling up to relay centers and collection centers with their precious cargo--each box destined to bless a child in the name of Jesus.
After a busy day at school I headed out to drive to Meadville and Conneaut Lake to visit the relay centers there. And for the third year in a row I made that drive through heavy rain. Showers of blessings might have been okay but the downpour I could do without. (This is, however, better than 2008 when we had 2 feet of snow on the Monday of National Collection Week.)
Meadville collected over 900 boxes already today and there were several hundred at Conneaut Lake. I could almost picture those hundreds of children a few months from now getting their special boxes after hearing a gospel presentation.
I have no idea how Erie or Warren collection centers or the other relay centers did today, but I'm trusting God for great things.
The victory is already secure.
