Church Apartment Ministry (Anchor House)

Thank you all for a successful Living Gift Market.

Thank you to the Presbyterian Women for baking cookies, Betty Nelson and Joann Navratil for their scarves and crocheted necklaces and Pam Tedeschi and Teresa Darr for their beautiful quilted table runners, tree skirt and tea books. And a very special thank you to those that just donated to the Anchor Houses.

We have kept the apartments full through Christmas which is quite a feat this time of year. (M.D. Anderson generally does not start new treatments at this time and likes to send most everyone home.) Our newest tenant is from Montana, the Goughs. They are finding our weather very warm.

Most of our tenants find the apartments very welcoming. If anyone is interested in seeing an apartment, let us know and we can show you one when someone moves out.

After the first of the year we are off to buy new mattresses for one of the apartments.
