Christmas Cookie Walk

Change of Day!!!!!

This year, we will host our 9th annual Christmas Cookie Walk on Sunday, December 9, 2018 from 12:00-2:30.  For a $15 donation you receive a plastic glove to slip over your hand and a container in which to place your selected cookies.  The annual Christmas Cookie Walk is the soul support for our mission project in Tanzania and all proceeds will be used to support the continuation of the education of Ansajiya Njinge as she prepares for a career as a Clinical Medical Officer in Tanzania.  When she completes her schooling she will serve in her local community where medical care is critically needed.

The Clinical Medical Officer program is a three-year training program which prepares clinicians to work in rural areas of Africa including health centers and district hospitals.  Ansajiya has promised to serve in the Konde Diocese for 7 years when her training is complete.

Through our Cookie Walk we will impact the lives of our brothers and sisters in the Konde Diocese and Mpuguso Lutheran Church in Tanzania along with other people in that area needing medical care.  Looking for bakers to bake several batches of your most delicious homemade cookies and bring them to the church on Saturday, December 8 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.  On Sunday, December 9 between services from 9 to 10, you will be able to purchase a box (or boxes!) of cookies.  Select from a huge array of beautiful Christmas cookies!  Additionally, the Cookie Walk will be open again later that same day to the general public from noon to 2:30 p.m.

Without your help and generosity, projects like this would not be possible.  In advance, we extend a huge “Thank You!” to our bakers for the 2018 Cookie Walk and those purchasing cookies to support Ansajive and the training she needs to help others in the Konde Diocese.

This event is sponsored by the Mpuguso Committee!  For additional details or to volunteer to bake your best Christmas cookies for the cookie walk, please contact the church office, 843-8155, or simply sign up  on the Springettsbury Vestibule Bulletin Board in November.

Thank you to those who return year after year to participate in our Cookie Walk.  Without our bakers, volunteers, and Scout Troop 19 and their help we would not be able to make this mission work in Tanzania and the Cookie Walk possible.  In 2017 we raised over $2700 to be used for medical education for Ansajiye Njinga who will provide medical care to her local community when she completes the necessary classes and training.
