Glenties Notes 7th February 2013
The Christmas Crib Collection thanks, Gratitude from Jimma in Ethiopia:
The people of Jimma are overwhelmed and delighted with the support from the people in Glenties Parish and Community at large. The money from The Crib and from the Charity Shop is sent on a monthly basis to support children, families, and old poor people, to keep body and soul together. They send back thanks and prayers and blessings in abundance. We are still hoping, if we are able, to finalize the necessary travel documents, to arrange for a couple to visit our community in the Summer, when we can forge closer links with the community in Jimma and hear first hand how our support is so essential to them. Hopefully we will organise a community event around their visit. In the meantime thank you again for your continued support, and if you have unwanted Christmas Gifts, or Good Stuff, that you no longer need, we are very happy to receive same in ‘Shop N Share’” Maria Rafferty and team.
