Thank You from the Teresian Sisters
To the parents and stu- dents of the Music Schools, to Ryan and Wanda, and to all those involved in "Operation Batesville”:
We couldn’t believe our eyes when we saw the num- ber of bags you collected for us! Every year you cer- tainly out-do yourselves in generosity! We thank you in the name of many fami- lies and of even more chil-
Their Christmas have been very dif-
ferent without the joy generous hearts made sible for them. We you could have seen their eyes lit up as
your pos- wish how they
unwrapped their surprises. They ran to their parents with their treasures, which most of the times was “just what I wanted!”
As you know, we will save this year’s gifts for next Christmas. Thank God we have space to safely store the toys during the year. Most of the clothing will be distributed now, since the coming months will be cold. There is a great im- mediate need for the jack- ets and everything else you sent on the line of warm clothing, as well as for the pampers, toiletries, etc.
May God bless you and your families for your gen-
erosity. We couldn’t do it without you. Our ministry is evangelization, but there are many other human needs that have to be met. We can help because you come to our rescue. All we can say is a big THANKS!
Please count on our prayers and those of the people you are helping. May the generous God, who inspires you to imitate Him in giving, bless you and your families, and may 2011 be filled with His blessings.
Gratefully, Sr. Dolores Avilés,stj Sr. Angeles Sendín, stj
