Families and friends of Diocese of Bethlehem raised $16,600 for purchases of gifts during "12 Days of Christmas for Kajo Keji" project
[From Jo Trepagnier]
Families and friends of the Diocese of
Bethlehem raised $16,600 toward purchases of gifts for our friends in
the Diocese of Kajo Keji. This Christmas ingathering (based on the song
The 12 Days of Christmas) allowed 150 U.S. families to buy items for
Sudanese primary schools, the women's training center, clergy, churches
and the local college. Most of the funds have been transferred to Sudan
so that items can be purchased locally. Solar powered radios will be
brought in from the United States in mid February by Kajo Keji's next
Bethlehem visitors: Trip Trepagnier, Chair of the World Mission
Committee, and the Rev. Daniel Gunn, rector of St. Stephen's Church
Wilkes Bare and chair of the Northeastern PA portion of the New Hope
The final count of gifts is:
Solar Lanterns 15
5 Gallon Water Jugs 118
Yards of Fabric 164
Laying Hens 120
Sewing Machines 26
Soccer Balls 20
Jump Ropes 14
Plastic Chairs 20
Thank you all for your support. The World Mission Committee intends to continue this project next year with new items added with ongoing advice from our friends in Kajo Keji. Thanks to the women of St. Brigid's Church in Nazareth and the ECW for their ideas and support, to Norma Meyers for her artwork and vision for the project, to Jenifer Gamber for her ongoing sage advice, for Charlie Barebo for 'Keeping It Gangsta', and to the members of the World Mission Committee.
We'll have new pictures of Sudan by the end of February which will include these purchases for an upcoming Diocesan Life and we would welcome an invitation to visit your church.
