Christmas 2008

Christmas 2008 was a big mission for us! Our hearts stopped when we saw, first thing in the morning, a long line of people waiting to receive rice, canned food, and used clothes. They started falling in line as early as 5:00 am just to receive the Christmas gifts that we prepared. We could have never asked for a better Christmas Day! Our hearts were filled with JOY seeing all the people leaving our compound with BIG SMILES after receiving their gifts – especially the children! Wow. Even just receiving a little pack of candies, chips and some juice packs made them so happy. It was amazing.
