Giving to those in need at Christmas time

It was a busy December here in La Paz, Bolivia!  I am working for HOPE worldwide Bolivia and this Christmas, we partnered with Foundation Arco Iris, the La Paz Church of Christ and other individuals in the community to collect food and clothing donations and we were able to provide a very special Christmas to 40 of the city’s neediest families.  We spent a couple of hours with the families at Casa de Paso, playing games, coloring, talking and eating.  It was a special time filled with lots of joy and smiles!  It truly is better to give than receive!
