wonderful warm socks
Huge thanks to our church family at Stanton Rd Baptist church and Hadrian fellowship, Bedfordshire for collecting warm socks for us to give out to people who suffer from the cold here in the mountains in Peru.
When Beaula (long time supporter of BMS) read our prayer letter saying that last winter people died from the cold in the mountains she wanted to do something to help. So we decided that the church would collect warm socks which we will distribute. People in Peru don't have warm houses or central heating and the winter months (May-August) can be deadly!
Debbie also in the photo helped Beaula collect the socks, Debbie is a long time supporter of the Williamson family , 10 years ago she was on the support group that encouraged Scott to first enter ministry. Debbie and Ant's 2 daughters Jess and Tash are visiting us to help us with our work next March during their student Easter holiday, as the socks arrive over the next few months we will distribute some for Christmas and Anjanette will give some out to the patients she meets in the clinic, often they wear rubber tyre flip flop like sandals and walk for miles in the cold wearing only this! We will keep some more to distribute when the really cold weather comes next year too.
Thankyou Stanton Rd and Hadrian fellowship God bless you!!
