of Thanks to the YDS Community
thanks to you all for your generous contributions to the staff Christmas gift.
We were able to give very nice gifts of cash to all of our custodial,
dining hall, grounds, and security colleagues at the close of last semester.
Each one of these friends in our support staff expressed great
appreciation for the kindness and generosity of this community, and asked me to
convey their thanks to you for the gifts they
received. Thank you all. My best wishes to you for the new year and
new semester ahead. Welcome back!

Opportunities to support Tsunami Relief efforts:
Teams: Money goes directly to medical
supplies for those affected by the tsunami. Their website is http://www.nwmedicalteams.org.
For those looking for ways to do hands-on help not just in the tsunami
affected territories, but elsewhere in the world where there are medical needs,
the NW Medical Teams is also an organization through which people volunteer
their medical skills. Teams are already on the ground there now. - Lynda Bigler
I'd been in touch with Jonathan
Bonk at the Overseas Ministries Study Center (OMSC) to see if he had received
any word about Nalini Jayasuriya who, as you may remember, returned to her home
in Sri Lanka following her time here at OMSC
(and her exhibit at ISM/YDS). Thankfully, she is fine and was able to get
through to friends in Florida, who passed the word along.
In his reply, he mentioned that the OMSC
community is raising some money to assist relief operations in Sri Lanka. They "will be sending a
cheque to Bishop Duleep de Chickera at the end of this month. He is the
Anglican bishop of Colombo." Checks can be made
out to OMSC, but donors should write "Sri Lanka Relief" on the memo
line; they can be given to Judy Stebbins at OMSC.Thanks,Gale Pollen.
