Spirit Village

Andrew and I went to Spirit Village today. It is an event at our church where you can buy gifts for missions. You 'buy' the item and they give you a card to present to the person in whose name you bought the gift. For instance, you can purchase a goat for a family in India or blankets for the women who live in the dumps in Egypt. There are so many good causes, it's hard to choose.
They set it up in the fellowship hall to look like a Dickens' Christmas. There are carolers, store fronts, even live animals. Andrew got to pet a goat and a monkey!!

A photo opportunity.

See?? Real, live animals!

Yes, Gramma....I washed his hands after he pet the monkey.


  1. What a great idea to raise money. Looks like you guys had a lot of fun.

  2. That looks like fun! I wonder why our church has never done anything like that! Love it! I also loved Andrew's awed expression at the monkey!

  3. How awesome is that??? What a great idea and a MONKEY! You don't get to pet one of those everyday. :)
