I discovered this cute children’s book a while back and have decided to give a copy away in appreciation of the many people who have helped us send 593 dresses and 141 pairs of shorts to Haiti (s0 far). The book is called Tap-Tap and was written by Karen Lynn Williams. The story is about a Haitian girl who gets to go to market with her mother and also gets her first ride in a Tap-Tap (kind of like a Haitian version of a taxi.)

Just leave a comment after this post, and I’ll put your name in the drawing. To make it fun, share your favorite Christmas gift this year. It can be one you received or one you gave away. The winner will be announce Friday, January 18.

2 Corinthians 9:6-8 Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap gernerously. Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace about to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
