Dear Family and Friends,

May… that was going to be our ‘take time to rest month’, but needless to say, the calendar filled up day by day and the ‘resting part’ got pushed aside for another time. Sound like your schedule too?

One of the many events for the month was our fundraising project of items donated by members of our congregation. The Family Vera donated a HUGE wooden table and chair set (so heavy four men had to move it!); the Family Báez donated a portable clothes closet (all of the mothers were hoping for this blessing!); and the Family Ozuna donated a beautiful leather covered thermos kit.

The drawing was scheduled on Mother’s Day, 05/16, as part of the special honoring of the mothers of the church. The Sunday turned out to be cold and rainy, but that didn’t dampen the spirits…we huddled under the tarps enjoying special music, the Word, a feast prepared and served by the men of the church, and finally the drawing! It turned out that families from our church received the clothes closet and thermos, and a family from the church in Zayas received the table and chair set. (They had to hire a truck to take it home… but they were happy!) The fun event earned $ for the on-going construction project.

Here are some pictures for you to enjoy from the Mother’s Day activities and the drawings:
