A note of thanks....
Recently, Steve Dumas received a note from Padre Midense in Honduras.  Our New England Synod has a companion relationship with the church in Honduras.  Each year, Padre Midense gathers funds for Christmas Gifts for children who live in terrible conditions, often gathering what they need from local dumps.  Steve had appealed to members of St. James for donations toward this important work.  Thank you to everyone who contributed!

"Thank you very much. My brother, for sending money for toys, I will send you pictures with pleasure, when you have them, You spend a Merry Christmas, with all your family, and many thanks."

Padre Midense
