Welch, a Texas A&M University Agricultural Extension Service home economist. "Changes in families mean education, community and church programs dealing with families have had to change too," says Welch. "Perhaps the most significant change is a greater concern with building family strengths in all types of families."

For these children, every meal is special: even if it is only a small cornmeal patty and water. fThis picture was made while I was in Haiti a short time ago, on o act-finding mission and during.a visit to Octamoliere Liberius, a ~ative pastor whom I have known for seven years. Pastor Octa has established two Christian day schools for the ~Ountain children in a region called Callebasse, and on Mr, Marie Roseaux about 30 miles east of Port-au-Prince. The school Qt Rosoaux is accessible only by a three-hour mule ride. Nowhere on earth is the force of evil more evident than in the ~11~untains of Haiti. Voodoo and superstition are a way of life. .nose day schools are a ray of light in this dark land. Here, the ~hildren are taught the Word of God, basic hygiene, and the "nree R's. win Haiti a sixth arade education is a major accomplishment. ith " . t out the efforts of Pastor Octa, the 300 or so chddren m these ~vo schools would gradually lose their God-given potential and Possibly never in their entire life hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ. o far, Pastor Octa has not been able to feed these children, ~nd. many of them come to school so weak and hungry that it is Ithcult fo t on the,r lessons , r them to concentra e ' . f t?ill you help us feed them?

Acting ~ntirely on faith, I have sent Pastor Octa all available money and Itnstructed him to purchase the necessary charcoal stoves, ket- ~es, plates, etc., and to begin feeding the children one meal of eons and rice or corn daily as soon as possible. d.At the very best, we only have funds to feed the children 15 ays after bu in the cookin e uipment I told Pastor Octa to ~-.

Smoked meat gifts are safe for eating Mall-order packages of smoked cured ham, bacon, sausage or turkeys are in- creasingly popular holiday gifts. But those receiving smoked meats may wonder bout its quality and edibility after weeks in storage and transit, says a Texas A&M University AgriculturalExtension Service nutritiontst. "Mail order gift packages from reputable dealers are safe for consum- ption, so you need not worry about giving them u gifts or using them yourself,," advises Marilyn Haggard, a foods and nutrition specialist. "The products are highly processed and contain preservatives, allowing them to be mailed without refrigeration," she explains. But the meats should still be inspected for signs of spoilage or surface mold growth, cautions Haggard. Foods wlth a questionable odor should not be used or even tasted. Surface mold is not poisonous and can simply be removed before the meat is used, says the specialist. Over two million people each year receive special ald--both spiritual and physical--at Thanksgiving and Christ- mas time, thanks to group of officers in the Salvation Army. It church services with several visitors being in church. Mr. and Mrs. Jim Scrimshire and family were absent from church ser- vices due to the death of a sister-in-law in Arkansas.

The Naomi Sunday School Class held their Christmas party on Thursday, at the educational building of the church. The husbands were invited to come enjoy the noon meal. Fifteen ladies and seven of the husbands were present. Several games were played and gifts from the Christmas tree were ex- changed. The men's Sunday School class had their party on Thursday night at the same place. Their wives were invited to their party The young people had their party on Wednesday. Between 70 to ?5 young people were present. They were divided into three groups according to age. I think each group gave wonderful program in song.
