There is NEVER a shortage of ministry opportunities for folks back home. This is an example...the team from Paso Robles brought down some pillowcase dresses that were made by a sweet woman in their congregation to give to the girls in Armenia Bonito. New clothes are reserved for Christmas or birthdays. Rarely does a child receive things we are accustomed to like toys, candy, etc. Parents have to save up money, and clothes are more important. So, having this opportunity to give out dresses "just because" to many of the young girls in Armenia is a HUGE blessing! And the girls couldn't have been more excited as they were modeling their new dresses for the camer.
