What a busy time the team has had since our last post in November 2012. The project to make, decorate and sell many gingerbread churches to raise funds for our project fee for El Hogar has come and gone. And what a success it was, with over 140 churches sold. The whole team is most grateful to all of our customers - THANK YOU! As part of our fund raising for El Hogar, Marilyn offered to make and sell her hand crafted greeting cards. A special thank you to her and to those of you who bought her beautiful cards.
Here are some pictures of team members and friends working on the churches, and of our display at the St Luke's Christmas Market 2012.
There are 11 of us going from Burlington, ON (Alan, Chris, Darla, Erika, Gillian, Janice, Lesley, Louise, Michael, Ros, Rick), and we are joined by Lynne from Ottawa, ON and Tom and Jane from Cincinnati, OH. Our trip this year will be April 13-20, 2013.
We invite you to visit the El Hogar website to see the activities of the El Hogar Projects in Honduras, and the activities of El Hogar Ministries in North America. You will also see that there is now a Canadian branch which has received Canadian Federal Government charitable status which makes it simpler for Canadians to donate.
