Sorry to be so long in thanking you for the 16 boxes of dresses and britches for Panama. Thanks to Greg Dahl for his help in picking them up. He, Dr. Jason, and Julie Jordan, a nurse from our congregation are there this week helping with their medical needs, distributing the clothes and conducting VBS along with those from other congregations. I asked Greg to take lots of pictures of the children wearing the dresses and britches your mission furnished. Now that I am easing back from medical problems, I wanted to write an article for our church bulletin on the help you gave us. Do I have your permission, and can we count on you again this year? We could pick them up and store them until next June if you run short of storage space. May God bless you in your continued work for the poor.
