Peanut Butter Paradise

This is what over 600 jars of peanut butter look like (plus some flash cards and other random items). Pretty cool, eh?

These are just some of the empty bags folks used to bring said jars to church for our peanut butter drive.

What is cool is that over 720 pounds of peanut butter is headed down to Haiti to feed kids. What is awesome and inspiring is that the Sunday we collected the peanut butter, we had over 2,400 at church. Can you imagine if every person brought a jar??!!! How awesome would that be??

"'...Test me in this,' says the Lord Almighty, 'and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it" Malachi 3:10

I am dreaming big of the day we have so much our little storeroom cannot contain it and we have jars of peanut butter rolling down the aisles of the sanctuary!

What a great idea! Children here (in America) are used to peanut butter. It must be such a treat for the children in Haiti! What a great way to bless them!

We have a sponsor child in Haiti and in the program there, peanut butter is a major source of nutrition for them. I often wonder, though, if they have kids with peanut allergies like my kids and what they do for them.
