Dear Friends, 

Thank you so much for contributing to the Giving Tree this year. With your help, 44 children received presents this year, and 16 families received over $1,400 in total donations of gift cards and cash gifts at our sister church San Esteban. This is in addition to the very generous gift from our friends the The Kings English Bookshop, who donated books for each child. Please visit their store and thank them for their gift!

During this busy holiday season, your generosity has not gone unnoticed. Again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. 

In Peace,
Julie Miller, Amanda Esko and Lissa Lander
