Time is Running Out!

time is running out3

Time is running out!  Who isn’t bombarded by that message these days?  For the holiday shopper, time is running out for those special holiday sales because there are only X days left until Christmas.  Time is also running out for anyone seriously considering the Mayan calendar and the ominous end of the world which they say should take place TODAY, on 12-21-2012.  If you belong to that group, you’re off the hook and don’t need to worry about doing any last-minute Christmas shopping, preparing for a holiday feast, or  spending time with friends and loved ones.  What’s more, you won’t have to fret one little bit about any New Year’s Eve bash, or watching floats parade down Colorado Blvd., or being riveted to the TV for the Rose Bowl game because the world won’t be around anymore. 

Seriously, it’s hard to believe that anyone could get too terribly wrapped up with this week’s end of show, but for generations upon generations, we know from history that this cycle continues.  There are always those who will find some reason to see signs and developments that point to the ultimate curtain call.  However, if we’re going to make a lot of noise about anything, let’s use the season to proclaim the Good News of a Savior who came as a child to ultimately die on the cross and rise again Easter morning. He came to earth to give His life a ransom for many.  Because of this unfathomable act of love, we will live in eternity with the very one who created this world, the very one who will ultimately determine when the ages end.  Let’s make a commotion, alright, by shouting to the rooftops the hope we have in the newborn King whose humble birth we celebrate this Christmas!

One of the auction items at last year’s golf tournament was ‘Lunch with Mr. G’, which the students cashed in today. Save the date and plan to join us for this year’s tournament on May 14th at South Hills Country Club! Yesterday our team was able to provide 50 moms with diapers/wipes/baby clothes and over 100 families with groceries and over 150 people with medical care at the clinic. Our team is soaking it all in and debriefing every night to discuss what they’re feeling and learning. #drtrip2018 Our medical clinic saw 98 patients today! Our students served food, distributes shoes, played with kids, painted nails, and ultimately shared the love of Christ with children at the Manny Mota Foundation today. Read more... link in profile. FCS alumni, Sophia Lorey, was so impacted by her 8th grade trip to the DR that she returned this year, her senior year of high school, with our team! Read about her experience today on the blog!
