First Olive Oil Sale!

Greetings everyone!
I'm pleased to report that our first Olive Oil sale was a huge success. We sold 48 bottles at Park Church and will continue to have bottles available over the next few weeks.
The oil we are selling is from Holy Land Olive Oil - an amazing company that works with the farmers in the West Bank to assist them in getting their crops to harvest. I encourage you to check out their website to learn more about this product.

I will be reaching out to other UCC churches in West Michigan in the next few months to host other olive oil sales, but if you'd like to purchase a bottle just send me an email or give me a call at 616.633.7975 and I'll get some out to you ASAP! The oil is $25 per bottle and you can mail any checks directly to the church. All of the proceeds go to support the Summer Ministry 2008 playground in Bethlehem.

On another note - Emily, Evan and I are getting ready to register for our Wilderness Emergency Medical Technician courses at NOLS in the Rocky Mountains! This is a month-long EMT training program that I will be attending shortly before I depart for the West Bank. I'm incredibly excited to be able to spend some quality time with my sister and my cousin, jumping out of helicopters, rescuing people from rockslides and attending Northern Outdoor Leadership School! I've included a link to the WEMT program in the sidebar on the right.
Blessings and Peace to all of you during this Holiday Season!
