Dear Cuba Friends,
We hope you are having a great summer. Please continue praying for our brothers and sisters in Cuba. Many of the churches have held Vacation Bible School activities these last few weeks. Churches are continuing Sport Ministry Programs for kids and adults. This summer, Pastor Alexi reports that 300 students and leaders are participating in Youth Camps at ‘Gibara,’ Holguin and ‘Yumuri,’ near Mantanzas! The theme this year is 'Pursuing Holiness.'
For those of you who would like to partner with us and provide ‘school supplies’ for our Fall 2013 trip, the office supply stores have begun their annual sales! We will be collecting school supplies, now until August 31st!
Next week, for example, STAPLES is promoting white glue, two pocket folders, and pencil boxes each for 1 penny! You are able to purchase 3 of each item at the 1 penny price, starting Sunday.
If you are a teacher, STAPLES offers special options to purchase 25 of the same item at the 1 penny sale price. Be sure to check that out!
Label the items, ‘Cuba-Virginia Hansen’ and drop them off in the ‘Cuba plastic bins’ located conveniently in classrooms on the Third Floor--*DC 326E, *DC 325E, *DC 309E, *DC 304, OR at the Security Desk near the Fellowship Hall at First Baptist Church of West Palm Beach.
