Enjoy Jo’s humor and hope in her message “Getting Over Messiness and Other Impossible Feats!” She tells how after she asked for help, God smiled and used Grand Mal Embarrassing red-faced moments to help her overcome decades of being “Sloppy Jo.” Though she would like to use the after word “spotless,” she quips, “That is entirely too strong a word!” But she shows how God helps with the power to do the impossible for every challenge!

Saturday, October 10, 2015

First Baptist Church of Pinetop, 1901 East White Mountain Blvd., Pinetop, AZ. (928) 367-0766.

Demonstration by Jo Russell, Dolly Peck and Kara Helland:

Creative Low-Cost Meals: Demo, door prizes, hot lunch and free cookbooks. This is open to the entire community and church.

The third of the five events in the “Operation Love Your Neighbor Program,” this activity was geared to reach out to low-income families in the area. The cooking demo was planned as a way to give a “hand up” to those in need instead of a “hand out.”

The information they shared helped attendees to know they aren’t alone and that God loves them!
