·        The work going on at our chapter office – remodeling the upstairs bathroom – thank the Lord for the generosity of an anonymous donor

·        The chapter’s spring luncheon set for April 6 at noon in Joliet at Faith Bible Church – ask the Lord to use this event to glorify Himself and encourage others to the important work of reaching boys and girls

We serve a great and mighty God – who is in heaven listening to our voice (Psalm 19) and is ready to righteously answer – we may trust Him fully.  Blessings - Mike
