We are so incredibly thankful for the many generous people in our congregation and various others who have donated so many things, time, and money to furnish, cloth and feed our Palestinian refugee, Ali. We are also so thankful to have Mennonite Central Committee Thrift Stores in our area who sell gently used items at such reasonable prices.
|Brothers in waiting!!|
This morning, things were moved into the apartment. The towels and bedding were put into the linen closet, the dishes, pots and pans, and utensils were put into the cupboard, the hangers were hung into the closet, a kitchen table was put together, the bed frame was put together, the mattress and box spring put into place, the sheets and pillow cases put on. We’re almost ready!!!!
