Christmas break-up party



We held our final fundraiser and Christmas break-up party for the Malawi Support Group where we sang Carols and were entertained and danced to the wonderful music of the "The Degenerates" who donated their services for the evening.The funds raised will be used to complete the flooring. walls and chairs for the new church and hall building in Ntdandire, Malawi. I will have pictures in the New Year.

At this time each year we exchange Christmas cards to include family news and best wishes. Below was a simple but inspiring short message prefacing an email I received from a medical missionary who I have previously corresponded with in Malawi, now back in Ireland –I pass it on to you at this time of the year also with my best wishes ~

May the Spirit of Christmas bring you peace, the gladness of Christmas give you hope, the warmth of Christmas grant you love with every good wish.

Thanks Lindsay - for the photos, update and the lovely greeting.

I wish a wonderful holiday time for you and yours, inside and out. And may 2008 bring understanding, love and peace to all. You're a vehicle for it!

Lindsay, the party looks like fun. It seems bizarre to see a Christmas party in summer clothes. :-)

Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Cheers,
Josie

Hi Lindsay,

Best wishes again Lindsay. I 'tagged' you on my site. Feel free to look at the post and don't feel obligated to do carry it forward unless you think it will be fun or interesting.
