Dear Friend,

Guess Who Came to Dinner?

Recently, we hosted 192 friends at our Annual Fundraising Dinner.  After placing silent bids on auction items and desserts and buying fun raffle tickets, we enjoyed a chicken dinner with decadent desserts, and listened to an "awesome" speaker (that'd be me!).  Best of all, God prompted and enabled everyone to donate a combined total of $26,950 for ministry to people!

New Sound System at The Pines

In October, Liberty Fellowship returned to The Pines for their annual Men's Retreat.  Before the men left, they blessed us with a new sound system.  Last year, they made and gave us an oak podium.  I wonder what they've got planned for 2011 ...

Hearty Breakfast Bonanza and Zesty Pasta Dinner

You're invited to our hearty Breakfast Bonanza on March 19 ... and our zesty Pasta Dinner on August 27.  Both events will be hosted at Parkview Christian Estates, near Rumble & College in Modesto.  For more info, click here.  Come and eat with your family and friends and support a great cause!

Year-end Giving Opportunity

We mailed my year-end giving letter to 1,500 dear friends and ministry partners, asking them to prayerfully consider making a special contribution.  If you don't receive it (perhaps because you're not on our mailing list) and you'd like to get it, call us at (209) 524-7993, and we'll send it to you.  To make a secure donation online, click here.  Thank you. 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

I hope you enjoy celebrating with your family and friends!
