Thanksgiving Day 2005

It is Thanksgiving Day in the United States and we all have much to be thankful for. The children of Roatan do not celebrate Thanksgiving Day but I do know that they are thankful for all the wonderful folks who have contacted me in recent days inquiring about what the children would like for Christmas. There is a new list written by one of the older girls that you can view by clicking on THE CHILDREN on the home page. Than clicking on WHAT THE CHILDREN NEED. Also click on A NOTE FROM THE CHILDREN. I hope to have some new notes up soon.
Right now the need is for clothes for school and church.
Please contact me if you want any more information

Visit Nov, 4, 2005

Kathy and Bruce, two CoCo View guests and Yannie from Playa Miguel and myself visited the children on Friday. We delivered a van full of goodies ,much of it donated from the Gypsy Divers who were at Co Co view the week before. The supplies included new sheets for all the beds, toothpaste, shampoo, books , videos, dolls, stickers, clothes, shower curtains, soap, crayons, coloring books, towels, cough syrup, vitamins, band aids, combs, hair brushes , hair clips, toys and toothbrushes to last for a year. Each child also received a teddy bear.
We delivered a special box to Karla from Joanne who visited the home with me last trip.
On the way over we stopped at Eldon's and spent the $150 the guests left and we stocked up on rice, beans, powered milk, cereal, Mack and cheese and flour.
Bruce took a picture of each child and Keith the webmaster will post them on the web page as soon as he has time.
I am also working on a way we can write to the kids and can get letters back from them.
There will also be an updated list of what the home needs in the way of supplies.
