On Saturday, December 4, I went to the local Mission Market in Kalona, IA which is sponsored by the Mid-Prairie Council of Churches. The charity's that were promoted were: Heifer Project International, Hospice, Nothing But Nets, Go Ye Missions Children's Home-India, Parkview Chaplaincy Program, 10,000 Villages Project, Tools of Hope and Blankets, Habitat for Humanity, Washington Co. Enrichment Foundation, Mary's Meals and Mennonite Disaster Service.
Several people commented that they remembered me coming to the Mission Market when I was a little girl. Some of highlights for me at the Mission Market were: getting the opportunity to talk to people about Mary's Meals, learning about other charity's, meeting a 102 year old spry young man!!!
