AS I LAY SLEEPING

Delivering a Different Kind of Christmas Gift As I lay sleeping in a fully decorated, warm house, our staff in Kenya are delivering Christmas gifts of a different kind than here in the US.  First, allow me to explain why my house is fully decorated. I wanted to skip Christmas decorations this year! Hauling boxes of lights and ornaments, Santas, and teddy bears from the attic sounded awful! But, my daughter is coming with my one year-old granddaughter and teenage grandson and she wanted the house decorated like it was when she was growing up…a 9 on a scale of 10 she said, so I skipped the outdoor lights.  Meanwhile, our team in Kenya is busy delivering as many malaria prevention nets as they can before Christmas. Pastor Hirbo is distributing nets in an unreached village in Marsabit County and our medical team is delivering nets in the slums of Nairobi. Not your typical Christmas gift, but to these children it is a life saving gift.  It takes a special kind of dedication to be out there working in slums and remote regions when most of us are enjoying the Christmas holidays with friends and family. But that’s one of the things I love about our staff – they can’t rest if they know others are in need. So they go where others don’t and work where others won’t, bringing the gift of life to children in Kenya….all year round. I ask you to prayerfully consider donating to our Year End Campaign. As always, 100% of your donations goes to support our Kenyan team. I and the US board volunteer our time so more funds can be sent to do the work on the ground. We are committed to real, sustainable change. It is possible. You can send a check to:  Partners for Care 2001 Breckenridge LaneAlpharetta, Ga. 30005 or Donate on-line at parnersforcare.org Wishing you joy and peace this holiday season, Connie Cheren, R.N., MSW Founder, Partners for Care
