Christmas is Coming – 2013!!!

Christmas is Coming!!!

It’s that time again!  Last year you were all so kind to support all of my boys, with some left over to buy the big dorm gifts.  Thank you so much!  Due to its popularity, I’m excited to share this opportunity again!

Kids all over the world love Christmas and my boys are no exception! I think they start asking me when Christmas comes again on about December 26th!

In our center, we celebrate Christmas with a new outfit (complete with undies!) and a gift bag full of treasures, big and small. I usually also have some “big” dorm gifts which might be a few DVD movies, soccer balls, maybe a scooter to a new trampoline if we need one that year. We also enjoy a Christmas feast with chicken, fries, salad, rice, candy and a bottle of soda for each child – they eat til they’re stuffed and we eat leftovers for dinner!

Would you like to participate in this practical and easy way to help make 32 little boys super happy this Christmas? A gift of $20 will sponsor one of my boys for their new Christmas outfit OR their Christmas gift. A gift of $40 will sponsor one of my boys for BOTH their Christmas outfit and gift.

It’s easy to give – simply send a check made payable to Laura Anderson (if you do NOT need tax-deductible credit) or Faith Fellowship (if you DO need tax-deductible credit) and mail it to:

Laura Anderson, PO Box 734, Roseburg, OR 97470.

DSC_0335I will send you a photo of the boy you are sponsoring and also send you a photo of them with their new clothes and gift after Christmas! For that, I will need to know your email address so please send me a quick email atLauraleighanderson@hotmail.com to let me know you are participating in this Christmas sponsorship.

It’s such a joy for me to bless my boys all throughout the year but there is something special about knowing they are enjoying Christmas. I so appreciate the investment of people that helps make that possible!

Hey, if it ain’t (too) broke, why fix it?

DSC_0697Felizardo and Gerson are having fun on the trampoline.  It’s been split from side to side, about a third of the way through, for a couple months now but it’s still working just fine!  I’ll probably try and get a new one for them for Christmas because I don’t think this one can last TOO much longer.

DSC_0698But they sure love it!

Super Sixteen!

IMG_0617

These two good looking guys just celebrated their 16th birthdays!  Inacio, in the center, was in my dorm for several years and he is one of my all-time favs.  He was a great friend of Pedro’s.  Betinho, on the right, never lived in my dorm but he is a real gem as well.

Our friend Rebecca treated us all to dinner as a gift to Inacio and we had a great time.  She’s back in the US so she couldn’t join us – this time!  These boys are loved!
