In 2012 we started to collect money for a Christmas-project. We bought second-hand-cloths and handed it out to poor children and talibées. It was a success that we wanted to continue the coming year.
2013 Christmas-gift-project was much delayed. We tried to buy the cloths we wanted to hand out, before Christmas – but it was too expensive. We waited therefor until January before we bought and didn’t get the chance to hand it out before end of February. I wondered why – but I think God had a meaning to it. In February there were five families that lost everything in a big fire in one of the villages we wanted to share the clothes. Now, the leaders of this villages decided that their part should all be given to those family.
So maybe God wanted it to be so, so that these families could be encouraged and get a salutation from God in all their trouble.
We handed out gifts as we told them of the greatest gift of all…
Meeting in Ker Djiby. Who should recieve the cloths? The leaders decided that the five families that souffered from house-fire, should share all.
