A Productive Day

Steve, the girls, and I had planned to give out 100 hams to families in need this Christmas.
But thanks to all of you, we ended up with 266 hams to give out.
The Firefly brigade, a local cycling organization helped us distribute them,
(A big thank-you to the Fireflies! Such dedication to the community...and to clean air)

To respect the families we shared with, we did not take any photos.
Their smiles though are forever etched in our memories.
Merry Christmas to all and a Happy New Year.

    We are so proud of your work -

    God looked down from Heaven and saw all of you continuing His work on earth.. you actually live the gospel of love and Christ's great commandment "to love one another as I have loved you".

  8. Hi Cheska,
    I share your view about not taking pictures of those who received the gift bags from us, that's why I myself did not bring a camera during that ride.

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
