The Miskins: January 2017
Children in Need and Link to Hope both benefitted from people's generosity in recent weeks. Link to Hope has had another successful year with nearly 44,000 boxes going to Romania, Moldova & Albania. May I take this opportunity to thank all those who contributed this year either with boxes, money donations or knitted goods. Shoebox Collections were: Edgcott Village — 26; Princes Risborough Church — 20; Ottley & Woozley — 16; AMC — 26; Stone & Dinton Friends — 36; 3's Company — 14; Boys' Brigade — 11. Margaret Miskin.
The Boys' Brigade's senior boys' Children In Need quiz sheet appeal raised the wonderful amount of £85.00. Well done to Tom, Sam & Robert for coming up with the idea and seeing it through with very little help from the officers. Let me know if you want a copy of the answers and I'll get the boys to print them off. Many thanks, John Miskin.

Guarding the truth is Donna's topic and the reading is 1 Timothy 4:1-16.1 The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. 2 Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron. 3 They forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods, which...
