#fivethingsfriday: All Things Christmas

Your weekly five-point summary of what's new with Nadege. 

1. What's Coming:

Our third annual Breakfast with Santa is quickly approaching. This year we're pulling out all of the stops with Santa and his reindeer (obviously), face painting, cookie decorating, ornament making, a balloon twister and so much more. We are super excited to bring a little Haiti to Kokomo with a Haitian dance team, fanal creating (creole for lighthouse) and a visit from our Haitian board chair, Guy Robert Dossous. See the video below to meet Guy and join us on December 9th from 9-11am at Oakbrook Church

2. Prayer Request:

Will you join us in praying for Breakfast with Santa? We're asking God to bring so much joy to our local community while providing #HoHoHOPE to survivors of sexual violence. Every dollar raised will go toward operating the safe house in Haiti.

4. Thankful Thoughts:

We are beyond words thankful for the opportunity to embark on our next step of building a safe house. God has provided in amazing and surprising ways through so many of you. In two short years, we've bought land, built a security wall, purchased a building package and now very soon women will walk through the gates of Nadege to enter into a new life of restoration. Thank YOU for helping to make HOPE happen!

"The joy of brightening other lives, bearing each others' burdens, easing one anothers' loads and supplanting empty hearts with generous gifts becomes for us the magic of the holidays."  -W.C. Jones
