PARISH LIFE NOTES
WARM WELCOME to Revd. Paula Foster who is beginning her ministry today.
The Vestry of St. Mary requests the congregation to help with diagnosis and treatment of Ayen, sister to Yar and sister in-law to Nathaniel. Ayen lives in a Ugandan camp with her six young children and husband. Ayen was living a normal life as a loving and caring mother until August 2021 when she experienced some dizziness and suddenly lost her eye sight. Ayen has tried to seek medical treatment through the financial help of Yar and Nathaniel but things continued to worsen. Ayen is currently guided by a child to walk around because she cannot see. Based on the estimate provided, the medical intervention, diagnosis and treatment will cost $2,000. One St. Mary’s friend has already donated $300, and we appeal to the congregation to help raise the remaining balance of $1,700. Please submit your donation to the parish so that you can receive a tax receipt and make accounting manageable. Once the parish has received the donations, arrangements be made with Yar and Nathaniel to send the moment to Ayen in a Ugandan refugee camp. Your prayer and generous support will be greatly appreciated.
Attached is the photo for Ayen (in yellow) and her four children. The two sons appear a separate photo. Ayen has six children.
