Mina Update

I wanted to give a quick update of our Mina project.

So, we had $20 to begin with and combined it with another couple in our small group who had $120. So far, we have grown that to $780 and been able to donate it to the Salvation Army for gifts, clothes, stockings and food! And we are still growing more money!

Yesterday my friends Kelly, Cathy and I stuffed 37 stockings for children in our county that may not otherwise be getting a stocking. We found out that they were 1000 stockings short this year. I wish we could have done more, but this will definitely be helpful. Anyway, they were full of hats, gloves, toothpaste, toothbrushes, toys, watches, books, crayons, markers, Play Doh, coloring books and so much more! It gave me great joy to take these stockings to the Salvation Army with my children. I was able to explain what the Salvation Army does and why God wants us to help others. It has been the most fulfilling part of my holiday season so far and definitely more what this season should be about.

I will give a final update later this week.

My sister's church did that project this year, and but I haven't heard the results from it yet. It sounds like you guys did pretty good.
