I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday filled with family, friends, football, and of course food. I will be cooking a turkey here and will have as many of the traditional trimmings as I can find.
Many of you received an email regarding our now being a 501-c3 in the States. That is a huge blessing to us and we are so happy to be able to offer a convenient way for you to be a part of the work here. I am so thankful for everything that has happened with Abigail this past year and all the lives we have been able to touch. I know we are making a difference!!!
I have been asked to give two different presentations at the US Embassy here in El Salvador. They will be on November 30 and Dec 1. This will be a great opportunity for us to share about our work here and to allow the Americans living here an opportunity to volunteer or to be a part in some way.
We are also planning an extra special breakfast for the children with Aids on Dec 20 at the Hospital Bloom. We will have extra gifts, cookies, music, and I am frantically hunting for a Santa suit. I want to make it an extra special day for them. Many of them will not have a tree or lights in their homes. Most of them do not even have electricity or running water! So this is going to be a great day!!! I will not be able to post photos since it is illegal to do that here with people who have Aids, but I can send a few in an email.
Everything with the Crisis Center is wonderful. Not a day goes by that the life of a woman is not touched in some way. I am amazed at the work I get to do here and I thank God every day that I am here. And I thank you for making it possible for me to be here. May God bless each of you and may you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. Remember to always be thankful for all things and take nothing for granted.
Hugs to Everyone,
