New Year's Eve
From Pat Tabb:
I was so glad to hear from you this year about Theo's Stocking and I made plans to deliver bread and a small check for food to a dear lady we know who is unable to get out. Today was the first opportunity to pack up my four grandchildren and to include them in the visit. It was also an opportunity to make them more aware of reaching out to others, especially those in need. We are delighted to honor Theo in this outreach.
God bless you, your wife, and your little girl.

Hi Professor F!
Hope you're enjoying your break! This year over the holiday my family and I participated in Samaritan's Purse: Operation Christmas Child. We recently received an email saying that our packages would be delivered to children in Zimbabwe. Our Christmas packages contained school supplies, toys, comb&brush, toothbrush&toothpaste, a mirror, soap, a loofa/bath sponge, a pack of pocket tissues, and socks. We also included a letter from my little sister who are 7 and 10, asking if the children receiving the package would like to be pen pals.We are very excited to see if they will respond back to us! Here's the link to the organization's site if you would like to find out more about what they do. http://www.samaritanspurse.org/what-we-do/operation-christmas-child/ Have a great new year!

From Matt Clingempeel:
Over Thanksgiving break, this teenager was running next to me on the treadmill. I guess he’s some big runner with the local high school team. He was running like crazy, over ten miles an hour. He did this for over ten minutes, slinging sweat everywhere. I’m serious, sweat was flying through the air hitting my treadmill and his was soaked. He stopped the machine and got off. I waited the last few minutes of my run for his to come back and clean off the machine. He never did. So when I cleaned off my machine, I cleaned his off as well. That was me being nice. Then I found him working out and told him to never leave a machine like that again. He started to walk over and to the treadmills and I told him I had done it already, in a scolding manner. That was me being a parent and not as nice. For your son, if it’s not too late, just focus on the nice part about me cleaning up the leakings of another’s body.
