Dear MORE family,
Warm and prayerful wishes for a blessed Christmas and a happy New Year to each one of you with your families, friends, and the generous supporters of MORE. May the joy, love and hope that you bring to so many children, their family, caregivers, and staff of MSC, come back to you one hundred fold as the Lord promised.
We admire your dedication to the care of the children along with those who are significant to them. Indeed your passionate involvement has made a tremendous impact not only on the OVC, but on the whole community. We are just completing the physical and financial plan for 2013. We noted the positive influence on all other client groups.
Thank you for taking your time to visit us, as it is difficult for us to convey what we experience here. Your presence, among us and with us, your gestures with the children, hug, dance, laugh, cry, teach, then walking in our village, entering the homes and seeing the depth of the suffering of the sick… empathizing, and sharing your insight saying “now I understand”… all this means a lot to us and bring us closer to one another, we feel you truly share our burden.
The children, staff, sisters, caregivers join me in sending you our love and prayers.
Sister Senkenesh G. Mariam
“It’s sharing your gifts, not purchasing gifts;
It’s not wrapping presents, its being present
and wrapping your arms around the ones you love;
It’s not getting Christmas cards out on time,
It’s sending any card, anytime, at the right time;
It’s not having the biggest and best Christmas light display,
It’s displaying the Christ light that comes from your heart;”
