This morning we set out to ask for donations for the Christmas baskets that we pass out to families in need every year. Greg, Pastor Carlos, Tino, Jose, Hector, Nathanael and myself all went into the market place and onto "Calle central" (central street) to let people know what we are doing. We collect anything from food, used/new clothing and shoes, toys, and other basic necessities like matches and plastic buckets. Today, we were able to collect some stuffed animals, rice and sugar. The young boys were really helpful. Here is a picture of Tino (left), and Jose (right) holding up some of the items we got. Pray that we can collect enough to be able to bless families who are going without this Christmas season.
Much love, Angela
