Thanks from Tonya for your fund raiser contributions

I just received a card from Tonya for whom we had a fund raiser beginning back in November and ending the first week in December. Many of you contributed generously, enabling us to raise well over $3,000.00. After weeks of looking for a reliable used car in her range, after passing over a 2011 Toyota Yaris which she loved but couldn't afford, she finally settled on a 2005 Mercury Sable. On the upside, it's beautiful, with new tires, a flawless interior and exterior and looks reasonably well-maintained. On the downside, it had a recent transmission replacement and has a few repairs that will be necessary to keep it in running order: the right-front axle, a ball joint, new brakes and rotors, a wheel bearing, a transmission flush, and transmission mounts. Still, she was able to get the car at a reasonable price and has some reserves from your generous contributions that will allow her to make most of these repairs.

Many thanks go to all of you. And now it's Tonya's turn to thank you in her own words. Transcribed below are her own words, originally written in a beautiful hand in a Thank You card:
To all my Guardian Angels near and far!

I want to take this time and thank you all for the blessings and prayers bestowed upon me! You have made my life so much easier.

God bless & Merry Christmas,
From your babe wrapped in swaddling clothes of love.
Dec. 2016
And my personal thanks to all of you, as well, for your selfless generosity in helping this sister in Christ. It all becomes the more poignant as we find ourselves in the season of Advent approaching the birth of our Savior. Thank you, and God bless you!
