As Eastern begins a new corporate year, we are reminded of Proverbs 16:3, “Commit your works to the Lord and your plans will be established.”

An article written a few years back listed the most dangerous intersection for accidents in the United States as the corner of Flamingo Road and Pines Boulevard in Pembroke Pines, Florida. During the two year study, that intersection saw 357 accidents, averaging nearly 1 reported accident every 2 days.

Late this summer I had the opportunity to join 49 other members from Springhill Baptist Church on a mission trip to Gary, West Virginia. We completed home improvements and led a Vacation Bible school. We were blessed to have many skilled craftsmen with us to lead the 6 construction teams which served 6 families. Our work ranged from painting, laying flooring, and patching holes in walls to adding/completing additions including roofing, insulation, sheetrock, electrical, and siding.

It is that time of year for Back to School shopping! This time of year was always my favorite, second only to Christmas. I love new school supplies and all the options that came with picking my new backpack, lunch box, trapper keeper, and pencil collection. Sadly, for many kids this time of year can be painful and embarrassing. Some kids may not be able to afford school supplies at all. I imagine the first day of school would be hard and scary knowing you don’t possess the tools to succeed in the classroom.

Grandchildren are precious gifts from God. They have the special ability to wipe away the pain that can take residence in one’s heart and replace it with joy. My grandchildren can easily brighten my day with their unconditional love and silly antics.

This summer my family and I were able to volunteer at Camp Providence again. Camp Providence gives kids who cannot afford to go to camp, the experience of camp as well as the opportunity to hear the Gospel. It is very important that we reach the young people with the message of Jesus Christ’s redemptive power and love. Most of these young people have already been introduced to street gangs. The kids all seem to be looking for the same thing, someone who will love and accept them unconditionally. This camp does just that, it treats everyone the same regardless of who they are. It should be an example to us all.
