COMPASSION EVANGELICAL HOSPITAL is in a critical financial situation. Due to the poor economy in Guinea and patients avoiding clinics and hospitals for fear of catching Ebola, hospital revenue is dramatically down. Presently, the WHO estimates that we likely will not achieve control or plateau of the epidemic in West Africa for another 8 or 9 months; the worst case scenarios are catastrophic. To help, you can mail a check to: Compassion Evangelical Hospital, P.O. Box 870, Southfield, MI 48037

OCC For March, let's focus on purchasing washcloths and bars of soap for our shoeboxes.

8God saved us by his grace when we believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. 9Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. - Ephesians 2:8-9 - New Living Translation (NLT)
In this age of being able to practically shop for everything online, sometimes it is necessary for the 'hands-on' experience of actually picking up and examining an item. This is particularly true when considering a new Bible. With so many translations and styles, it is easier to browse through a selection before making a choice.
