Krystle, Ignacio and Emilio at St. James

Krystle, Ignacio and Emilio visited St. James on August 31st.  Krystle’s message was wonderful as she tied the scriptures of the day to their missionary work in Argentina with Young Adults in Global Mission.  After the service we had a relaxed time sharing conversation and a light breakfast. It was great to meet Emilio in person!

Appalachia Days in Process

Sixteen people plus the pastor worked on the Appalachia donations throughout the day on Monday.  Doors opened at 8am, and folks would come and go as their schedules allowed.  The morning included a 3 year old, who helped carry items to their locations, and in the evening four older children came and worked really hard to fold and place the clothing items. Here is one of them taking a “fun break”!  The 2nd picture below is what the Sunday School room looked like at the end of the night.  Thank you to everyone who helped on Monday!
