In an earlier blog, I spoke of having perks and privileges in my life. I wondered what I might do with that privilege.
Yesterday, while visiting the Lutheran church in village of Ólafsfjörður, and talking with Pastor Sigríður Munda Jönsdöttir, I learned about an outreach program they have with children in the community once a week. The children have recreation, snacks, and are taught about church in the manner we would consider Sunday School.
Of particular interest to me was how the children of this outreach program, have an outreach of their own. They collect gently used toys, hand knit items, and candy to be sent to children in “white Russia”. I understand this area to be Belarus.
I made a donation to this effort. I’m intrigued to learn more about this when I return home.
