Hope, our current director of China operations, said this about the gifts we bring to China, "We did mission trips before and feel it is good to be there and that our relationship is the main thing but you teach us to bring love by bringing gifts like the shawls and hats. It help us to see you really care about us and now we want to do that when we make mission trips!"
Hope will be taking the remaining shawls, scarves and hats from the KnitWits and from Sharon Tom to the northwest of China. The people there are very poor and the weather is very cold so these gifts will be meaningful on many levels in addition to extending a loving hand while sharing the Gospel!
Thank you to all who have knitted, given, sent funds, cared, prayed and loved - you have made a difference and your loving efforts will reap eternal dividends!
Ann Dou, former principal of "100 Fold" Kindergarten also made a special trip to bring gifts for those who have helped us to give - can't wait to send them to you!
