Thank you for your ongoing interest and support of the Mission of Hope to

Nicaragua. 2018 will be my 11th experience and each one is unique. This year Woodstock Hospital has donated a number of laptops after their latest technology upgrade, which we will deliver to several schools.

There may not be much space for many items in addition to the school supplies already received. Room will be found for 2018 scenic/animal/bird/flower calendars which are always appreciated.

The easiest support is financial: a cheque made out to IPC ( Innerkip Presbyterian

Church) with Nicaragua in the memo line will generate a receipt. The deadline

of Sunday December 10thwill help avoid a last minute rush.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Muchas gracias!! Blessings, Mary Lou.

Nancy Vandenberghe from Dundas UC is available to provide the Wings of

Hope ministry for seniors to our churches.  Nancy offers confidential companionship through: home visits, friendly phone calls, a listening ear, rides to appointments, music, prayer, small outings (for coffee, for groceries), practical guidance, and referral to community resources.

If this ministry is something that you would welcome for your self or for someone else who would benefit, please call Nancy Vandenberghe  519-532-4649.

Donations to the WINGS of HOPE can be placed in the offering plates at both churches.
