Our parents express how welcoming and generous your church members have been on delivery day. Of course, Kay, you are wonderful to work with and so patient with the process. May TUMC continue to be our partner and share in similar blessings throughout the year. Again, thank your congregation for their generosity and warm hearts.

Merry Christmas from Ethiopia (Laura Still)

[Card Front] Wishing you threads of happiness and colors of joy woven throughout the fabric of your life.

Dear Trinity,

This card just screams ‘Trinity’ to me.  This Christmas-time I’m thinking of the whole Trinity family – sending everyone my love and lots of fuzzy warm hugs.  Carrying in my heart everyone’s prayers and a vision of your smiling, laughing, singing faces.  You are my roots, my role-models, my support, my inspiration.  I am thankful to have such a wonderful, beautiful church family!

:-) Love,

Laura Still
