A Little Project to Help the Sisters of Namibia Sing

Tuesday greetings from the Midwest, where the weather has turned sharply cooler today.

Today I did something that I have never done.

Fr. Ed Foley, Capuchin, recently contacted me and the subject line of his email was "begging." I knew I was in trouble right off the bat!

He recently returned from three weeks of teaching in Namibia and had spent considerable time there with the Missionary Benedictine Sisters of Tutzing. He noticed that they were using hymnals (words-only) from the 1960's. He wondered if perhaps we at WLP and J.S. Paluch might be interested in donating 125 hymnals and some accompaniments to them so that they could have a better music resource in their hands. We decided to do so, but the shipping costs were just not possible for us to cover.

So . . . Ed and I have started a GoFundMe campaign to raise those funds. Would you consider donating? Here is the link.

And here are some photos Ed sent me from his time with this wonderful group of sisters. This one is a bit of a Where's Waldo, only here it is "Where's Ed?"

Here is a photo of worshipers dancing and singing at Mass.

And finally, a lovely photo of one of the sisters holding a child.

Please consider a donation to help these sisters as they sing their praises and thanks to God.

Gotta sing. Gotta pray.

Great outreach, but the link does not work. Has the funding already been reached? Blessings and prayers~ Denise
