A Gift for Wings Ministry's Christmas Party and a Pet Picture with Santa at Habitat for Humanity's Thrift Store

Presents Needed for Wings Ministry's' Annual Christmas Party
Wings for Life Internationnal, a ministry that supports the families of members of our prison population, is collecting presents for its annual Christmas party this Saturday, December 13, at St. John's United Methodist Church in Albuquerque.  If you would like to donate presents, please bring them to the Wings office, 2015 Wyoming, Suite J, or to St. John's United Methodist Church, 26226 Arizona NE.  Here is  the Christmas Wish List  

 WFLI is also accepting donations for the party, including undecorated sugar cookies, frosting, sprinkles, Crystal Light lemonade, paper supplies (cups, plates and napkins), and financial donations to buy pizza.

WFLI hosts three parties a year: a Christmas, Easter, and a Back-To-School Party, hoping to reach families at important times throughout the year. The parties are held in sponsoring churches in different parts of the city and in different denominations. All participants in Wings, whether they are inmate’s family members or church volunteers, enjoy the interaction of Christians working together from many different denominations
