Members of Nahunta Extension and Community Association Club held their September meeting, with Nancy Peele giving a devotion on “Significance” by Joni Erickson.

Erickson told the story of Diane, who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and could barely talk, sat in a wheelchair and had to be pushed and fed. She had a bulletin board in her room with notes and cards, and would look at the board and pray for all the people on it.

Her life was significant because she prayed and allowed God to work through her for him to touch many lives and situations.

Peele said that even though we feel like our lives have no meaning at times, this woman’s example proves us wrong. She said God can use anyone, and everyone is significant to him.

Hostess Irene Johnson gave away a creative door prize of a book of stamps.

The program and project for the month was making essential article kits for patients at Wayne UNC Health Care, as well as for those at the Community Soup Kitchen of Goldsboro. Members donated items for the kits, including socks, deodorant, hand sanitizer, toothpaste, toothbrushes, combs, lotion, soaps, face cloths and shampoo. The club assembled 20 kits, 10 of which were taken to the hospital and 10 to the soup kitchen.

Due to the increase in COVID numbers and the delta variant, the club will not meet in October.

Until the next meeting, members will work on their Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child shoebox project until the November meeting. The shoeboxes will be sent to Samaritan’s Purse to be distributed to children.
