Blind Association Christmas Party

                                           

This video captured many of my memories of working with this association of wonderful people in Angola. I just dropped John off at the airport, he will  be in Angola for only 10 days. When I asked our hospital administrator what I can send him from America, he didn't ask for an i phone or laptop like most others do, and I thought he would. He said that with the economy down, everyone is suffering. Salaries are not going out on time for anyone! So those without suffer even more. He was discouraged that this years Blind Association Christmas party might have to be canceled. He asked for donations toward this event that brings joy and gives Christians the oportunity to give to the "least of these".

Each year, we like to fill a bag with flour, sugar, oil, margarine, noodles, canned hotdogs, etc. All the things that would help our blind association members be able to contribute to the family holiday festivities. It is always a beautiful event with many coming together to sing and receive the bag of goods.
If you are interested in contributing to this event, please go to our Website at
www.sorichlyblessed.org.
 You can send me a message from the site before donating specifying that your donation is for the blind association and not for the students.
It is my passion and pleasure to be the one advocating for the people of Angola. In times when our country is flourishing and another is hurting, let us do some thing about it!!!

Pictured below are the Christmas events from the past, when I lived there. First we have a couple of us filling the bags with goods.
This is Geisa and me getting the bags ready the give out
I'm not sure why, but it turned out to just be us distributing all the food into the bags.
