A Blanket of Christmas blessings
Updated: Oct 31, 2019
Many thanks to generous financial gifts from the congregation of St. Matthew's UMC and other donors, we were really blessed to be able to distribute over 80 new, large plush blankets to families and ministries in Piedras Negras on Christmas Eve 2018. We also had lots of gently-used blankets, coats, jackets, shoes and warm clothing to share, and an ample supply of holiday cookies and snacks.
In addition, we received wrapped gifts from the Children's Hunger Fund and approximately 50 age-appropriate gift bags for kids from our good friends at Faith Community Church in Bayou Vista, Texas. The love and warmth of Jesus was expressed tangibly!
