Please help a missionary visit home

Every Friday, well almost, Padre Mickey and his lovely wife Mona bring us Friday Mr. Red Peanut Bank and Gallito Mescalito Blogging. The latest episode, an historical look back, is here.

Padre Mickey is an Episcopal missionary in Panama. You can check out his work at his blog Padre Mickey's Dance Party. It's obvious from the faces that he is doing good work there. In April Padre Mickey and Mona hope to go on sabbatical for a few months. Unfortunately they exist on minimal missionary pay which gives them enough to exist but not do anything else. They plan to return to the US but have little or no savings with which to pay for a place to live.

The Rev. Elizabeth Kaeton (TELP) at Telling Secrets and our beloved MadPriest at OCICBW have launched another fundraising appeal. You may remember that we raised money for a church in Rio a couple of years ago. Those of us who know Padre Mickey and Mona, albeit vicariously, would appreciate a contribution. Were they to receive enough funding, they could come east and we could have another big party and all meet in person. If you would like more specific information, including what is planned for the gifts, please go to either blog.

There are Paypal buttons on both Telling Secrets and OCICBW. Or if you prefer, you may send your checks (or cheques) or money orders, made out to The Episcopal Church of St. Paul and marked "City of God Appeal" to:

The Episcopal Church of St. Paul
200 Main Street
Chatham, NJ (USA) 07928

Please help!
