Hello Hazelwood Friends, 
 
Well, COVID is messing with my plans for this week as it’s hitting me hard. So I’m going to need to delay the beginning of the Praying with Mystics study I just told you about last week! It may be a couple of weeks before I feel up to it, and I will keep you posted. 
 
To be perfectly honest, I’m feeling pretty miserable. Among many other unpleasant symptoms, my throat is so raw that I’ve lost my voice. I know without even asking that many of you would be praying for me, and I appreciate that so much! I’m also thankful that I am vaccinated and boosted, and that I’ve been able to start a 5-day course of antiviral medicine, as well as prescription cough medicine. 
 
Hope you all are well!
Shalom, Rev. Pamela

Note of Appreciation

Thank you so much for your support of First Choice for Women. Without support from people like you, we wouldn't be successful in our mission of helping women, babies, and young families while sharing God's love.

May God Bless,

~Ashley Hunter, Board Member, First Choice for Women

Christmas in July

This Sunday, July 31, is the last day for donations of non-perishable items for Christian Ministries' Food Pantry. Items can be placed under the Christmas tree in Sulanke Commons. The pantry is low on a lot of items right now, and our donations will be a much-needed relief to this important community organization!

Items needed include: Boxed dinners, cereal, peanut butter, powdered milk, macaroni & cheese, canned fruit, toilet tissue, shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, bath soap, diapers.
*There is a great need for peanut butter, powdered milk, and canned fruit

Thank you for your generosity!

Garden Update

Many thanks to Mary France for donating a device that is helpful in cutting down tree limbs. The adjustable handle will likely prevent any accidents involving out-of-reach branches!
 
The Garden Team and other property helpers are still in need of a two-handle branch cutter that often looks like this:
