Baby Clothes

Dear Family @ New Life Church:

You will be delighted to know that the women had a fabulous time picking out clothes. We sold 190.00 euro and have about half of the clothes sold. They decided to ask 5 euro for each piece. It is really a great help as the owner of the building gave us the bill of the increase in the taxes that are to be paid by the church for renting the building for the last five years.

Please tell the children that as part of the gift that was given, Danielo recieved 30.00 euro to go to the Scout program with Guilio. Their family would not have been able to send him.

Thanks so much for keeping us encouraged!!!
The family in Ostia sends you greetings.
Dan, Alice, Michele and Anna

A Euro is worth about 1.28 US dollars. If you do the math, you'll see that 190 Euros is just over $243. That's a lot of money considering they only sold half the clothes that were sent. That's exciting!
