Gifts for Gracias - a quick note from Boo, with PICTURES

We, and the people of western Honduras, would like to thank all of you for your hard work, prayers, and support with this year’s shipment, and all the other years too. It means so much to the pastors up in our mountains. Most of them don’t have a salary, but instead live off the land, farming or gardening.  

We’re now in the final stage, which is making the actual gifts for the pastors and distributing them. The other stages on our end were first getting the donations here, then organizing all the stuff, then putting together what we call “starter bags,” which are made up of the things that go into each pastoral family’s gift - such as a soccer ball, backpack, soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, pencils, pens, etc.    

Iris, Crusita, and I would appreciate your continued prayers for strength and energy as we finish this task.
