How to celebrate Christmas with the Onobasulu and Beverly . . .

December 3, 2012

Here is a list of 26 ways to help us celebrate:

1. Pray for the Onobasulu to be hungry for God and for God’s Word in their heart language.
2. Cards & letters to Beverly are always welcome.
3. DVDs: what is new, or what is your old favorite?, I especially like period drama. Or CDs of music: Christmas, Christian, Classical, etc.
4. Books (read anything good lately?) Devotional or recreational books or magazines (even recycle your old ones to PNG).
5. Gift cards to Amazon, or clothing store, or your favorite site to shop.
6. Good band-aids (various sizes).
7. Packages of toothbrushes, both child & adult
8. Candles, both scented and unscented (just nice to have in the house); or the new battery candles.
9. All kinds of stickers.
10. Crayons (small boxes are best or the extra thick less breakable crayons are great too).
Coloring books (large pictures of animals or other not so culture specific pictures Or Bible stories).
11. Pray for the literacy workers to continue to be motivated to keep on teaching.
12. Oil of Olay active hydrating lotion for sensitive skin.
13. Face paints or colored chalk.
14. Cross stitch supplies: like Just Cross Stitch mag subscription; cross stitch kits; aida cloth various sizes & colors; nice embroidery scissors.
15. Johnsons cornstarch Baby Powder, and Baby lotion.
16. printer cartridges: HP 564 black & color set for HP (Ukarumpa) and
HP 74 & HP 75 for HP C 5200 series (translators’ printer) and HP HP 920XL both black & color for HP Office Jet 7000 wide carriage (literacy printer) We use more of the black ink than color, we support 3 printers.
17. Battery and/or memory card for Sony CyberShot (DSC-W220)digital still camera.
18. Chocolate, always chocolate.
19. Pray for the Onobasulu translators as they work on the Gospel of John first draft.
20. Craisins or other dried berries; or nuts like pecans & almonds.
21. Pictures of you, your family, or just blank photo paper for me to print photos.
22. Waterbabies sunscreen.
23. Airborne homeopathic cold treatments.
24. Solar re-chargeable lamps or flashlights.
25. Gift cards to places like Kohls, LLBean, Land’s End, etc.
26. Used, but still working watches or clocks to share with teachers and other co-workers.

Why a list of 26? I listed 26 ways since I work in Papua New Guinea that celebrates, Boxing Day, too. It’s a mix of things that I would use personally and items that I would take with me to the village. Try to use flat rate boxes or envelopes, as they have the most economic postage rates.
I am in Texas for this Christmas! I will so enjoy time with my family. The items for the language program will get shipped to PNG. Thanks for supporting my ministry in this way.
Could you guess what was for me myself, and what was for work, you might be surprised. I have a more personal list that I can send you via email, if you are really interested in something just for me.
