Activities and project news

Presentation in Alblasserdam
Tuesday April 3rd, Marja and Cora gave a presentation about the work of Traveling Light  at the PCOB (Protestant Christian Elderly Association) in Alblasserdam.

The Easter message (new life) was illustrated with practical examples: the down and out receiving new life at the Teen Challenge rehabilitation centers throughout Europe. We were encouraged by all the kind comments.

On Thursday April 5th, Michel & Janet van Boxtel of non profit organization Embrace were present at our mission night in our second hand shop Twinkeltje. They shared about their work among the homeless people in Budapest, Hungary. We were able to bless them with a nice check of no less than 2,300 euro. That was the revenue of Twinkeltje over the month of March and the offering we took up.

Cora presents the donation
The mission nights we organize from time to time are an ideal opportunity to bring supporters and the people behind the projects together!

Thursday April 19th you have another opportunity to sponsor Traveling Light and well by participating in the Lukassen & Boer non-profit Run.

Join our team!
Each participant can run or walk a maximum of 10 km and the organization will donate 1.50 euro for every 2.5 km round towards the Traveling Light account. Entry cards are available at the start. Take your Traveling Light t-shirt with you or ask Jan or Cora for one

It promises to be an exciting event again. feel free to come and join us. It is great to be outdoors!

Used books, clothes and household stuff ... we have it all. Every year we are able, thanks to your purchases, to donate a nice amount towards our projects.
