How To: PJ’s 101

Here is how to participate in the PJ and Blanket ministry.

The list of names/sizes/genders is being updated now by Brother Don in Piedras Negras. We have to update each year because:

  • Sizes change as the children grow
  • Children get adopted
  • New children come in to the orphanages

As soon as the list is complete We will give you a name/size/gender and you can find the PJs that you want to buy for that child/ children.
We ask that you buy sturdy, and warm pajamas. It gets cold there in the wintertime just as it does here. Even for girls we ask that you buy pajamas with pants. Flannel PJs are best.

Next, wrap the pajamas in Christmas paper with a ribbon or bow, and a name tag with the child’s name. Then pray over the pajamas and pray for the child, placing a blessing on both!

For those wanting to buy blankets, what we are looking for are the Fleece “Throws” that are so popular.

If you want to buy both and be a double blesser, please do!  We wont mind and the children wont mind either.

Stew time

LTCM is ready to sell their all time famous Paw Paw’s Camp Stew once again. Money is needed for the winter trip and stew sales always pull in needed funds, plus are a wonderful social event for those who like to help. In order to help us raise the maximum amount of money possible, we are asking for donations of the following items:

Meat: Boston Butts, Beef Roasts and Whole Chickens

Produce: Sacks of Onions and Taters

Canned: (#10 cans) Tomato paste, Whole tomatoes, Whole kernel corn, Baby Limas

Bottled: Hot Sauce (Texas Pete or equivalent), Worcestershire and V-8

Other Items: Fish Cookers (Propane), Pots LTCM owns one big aluminum pot, but is in need of another. A cast iron wash pot or aluminum pot will be great. In years past we have had access to a commercial stove to cook on, but that is not available now. We could use a couple of fish cooker type burners and be able to cook the stew outside (like good stew is supposed to be cooked).

If you have any of these items or would be willing to purchase them, we would be thankful and put them to good use. Tickets will go on sale in a week, and the tentative date for pickup of the stew will be 11/21/09, the Saturday before Thanksgiving.
