Our three little neighbors came over yesterday to sit by the fire (while Norbert taught them a few chords on the guitar) to simply stay dry from the damp cold.
Our blanket campaign from Missionary Ventures' Christmas Catalog is in full force.
Last year we bought our blankets from San Miguel. However, this year our blankets come from Carapegua, four hours northwest of us.
They are woven with vibrant scraps of cloth to make a very strong blanket that's like your grandma's old braided rug. This year, the blanket project was a team effort. Special thanks to missionary friends the Hagermans in that city for the contact; they and cousins the Martinez' family brought them to us!
Thank you to everyone who contributed to this help keep 80 needy people warm this winter. We pray for each recipient and trust that not only would they sense physical warmth, but the warmth of Jesus' love for them.
