Saving lives for Christmas

For the person who has everything, choose an alternative Christmas gift that can actually save lives. First Lutheran Church of Gypsum is selling maize bag ornaments to help feed the hungry in Darfur, Sudan. Each bag replicates a 100 pound sack of grain that can feed a dozen Sudanese people for several months. The bags, available for $22 each, (includes shipping & handling) are available by writing to: FLC, PO Box 391, Gypsum, CO 81637. Make your check payable to First Lutheran church, and write “Maize Bag” on the memo line of your check. Please include a note, specifying your order, your name, or the recipient’s name and address. Your order will be mailed out before Christmas. Call 524-7919.
