Hope House Christmas Party!

Today we had the privileged of spending time with thirty wonderful kids at the Hope House home for at-risk kids.

We came bearing gifts! Some children from our home church (York Alliance Church, PA) had written a Christmas card to each Hope House child by name!

Our kids had fun translating all the messages to each one. Some of the cards had "scratch and sniff" stickers- that was a new concept to them!

"Aunt Lisa", a good friend and nurse at Bongolo Hospital, shared the story of the candy cane with the kids. The kids were very attentive! She also took time to evaluate one of the kids who was bed-ridden with a fever.

Please continue to pray for the Hope House. Their landlord has recently jacked up the rent to about $1200 a month! Incredible. They are short on funding and food. Thankfully, there is land available for their very own, rent-free home to be built upon, but now we need work teams to come and assist the local believers to make the house a reality. Do you have a team that would like to come? Zap me an email to let me know.

Have a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!!!
