People ask, "What types of things do you need?"  I am always so hesitant to say because I don't want anyone to feel an obligation.  We are thankful for what we have and make it just fine.  There are things that are hard to get here, things that are overly expensive here, things we just can't find, or things that are not within our budget but maybe we need or could use.  Following is a list of these types of things, from large to small. They are in no particular order.   Sometimes people are coming to visit and a few things can be tucked in, sometimes things are being compiled for a container and can be stored in our things at the church.  If you wish to do either of these things let us know by email and we can work out the logistics.  Thank you for asking about us!
