1,599 and counting! Beth Bryant of Canada (left) had a vision to send “goodie bags” to all the wives of military men at Schofield Barracks in Hawaii, a unit served by Grace Brethren Chaplain James Schaefer. So every day at national conference, people are going out and buying bags of candies, shampoos, soaps, bath oils, and more—and dozens of people are stuffing the bags, writing notes, and participating in some way in “Operation Enduring Friendship.” By this evening (Tuesday), nearly 1,500 bags have been stuffed so far. 2,000 is the goal by Thursday noon when conference concludes.
