Thank you so much for being a part of this with us. We will be taking these to the Ger district and handing them out to children in need. The Ger districts are those on the fringe of the city. A ger is a felt tent that is usually heated by burning coal this time of year...the only place were a child would love to have a lump of coal in their stocking over...waking up to find all your water and everything else frozen in the morning.... I thank Him always for you and being a part of our family.
