$1.9 billion! Way too much! Just think how many apples, bananas, oranges, or celery stalks that can buy to nourish kids (or pastors) bodies with! Get the kids a gift card for the amount that you would normally buy in candy and let them shop! They love it and they learn that toys, cd's, etc. are more than they expected.
Great suggestion!! I'll have to remember that to announce that next year. You were right on with the amount, I heard $2 billion. WOW!! Think of how many people that could feed or teach to feed themselves. I'll take the fruit, but pastors don't eat celery, I think it is the 17th commandment.
