    This became clear to me when I read the Old Testament book of Numbers.

    “For I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:11b-13).

    Evergreen Outreach was back at First United Methodist Church this week.
