Donate Your Old Digital Camera to Starfish!
Donate your old digital cameras to benefit children in Juárez!  During Pastor Jesús’ visit during the last Recycling Day, he talked about a program he started with his younger students at Tocando Puertas.  He has a professional photographer teaching a class to help those interested children learn more about photography. The class is very extensive. The goal is to give students another skill and keep them involved with improving their future.

Pastor Jesús plans on giving the graduates of the class a working digital camera. If anyone has a camera they are willing to donate to this cause, that would be greatly appreciated. If you could send me a note at Texaskraut@verizon.net and drop the camera off at the church office so that we can take them with us on the upcoming Starfish Mission Trip on June 17, 2017.
Thank you for your continuous support of our Starfish Mission! Blessings, Bernd Braun

Sole Hope – We Need Your Jeans!
THANK YOU to everyone who donated jeans for the Sole Hope project to create shoes out of our old jeans for the children of Uganda. Please continue to bring in your old jeans any size, any color, any condition as long as they are denim. Dedicated volunteers cut out shoe patterns for children in Uganda who have no shoes and are attacked by a parasite, Jigger, which lays eggs in the children’s feet.  The feet become infected and the children are kicked out of schools and sometimes even their villages. Sole Hope gives these children hope, clinical attention and a new pair of shoes.  www.solehope.org  I will be collecting jeans to give to this organization.

Karyl Fischer has decided to try this craft instead of just sending the jeans out.  Would you like to join her?  Karyl can be contacted through the church office – 972-724-2323.

Housekeeping
Please help us take care of our beautiful facility!
·        If you are the last one to leave the building or an area of the building, please ensure the thermostats are reset. The Sanctuary air conditioners are not capable of cooling to 69 degrees when the doors are open and this setting causes the units to freeze up!
·        Our cleaning service places new trash can liners in the bottom of the cans throughout the building. Thank you for taking out the trash often so we can avoid bugs in the kitchen; if you notice we need new supplies, please let the office know and more will be ordered!

Check the event calendar for all scheduled activities.
