Mitch Zimber has just left for several months of study in Japan; and our Lord has provided an opportunity for us to encourage his academic adventure with useful tokens of personal affection.
Specifically, studying abroad is very expensive - books, lodging, food, travel, etc., etc., etc., - and by sending some necessities like toiletries, packaged foods, gum, AA batteries, toilet paper, treats, beef jerky, office supplies, and so on, Mitch will not have to divert precious resources ($) from his studies for 'em.
So as we announced in worship yesterday, we are collecting those items - a table in the office is reserved for the pile - this week and asking you to drop off goodies for Mitch through Thursday so we can ship on Friday.
BTW, if you would like to help pay for the postage, please write a check made out to "First Presbyterian Church" designated "Mitch" or give cash to Karen.
Blessings and Love!
