Prayers for Christmas: Children

Happy Feast of St. Nicholas, patron saint of children!

Today’s prayer for Christmas comes from our youngest contributors: 6-year-old Bolivians recovering from burns.

“We are grateful for airplanes, flowers, dolls, backpacks and shoes.”

The children live and heal at the Franciscan burn center in Cochabamba until they are well enough to return home to their families.
FMS missioner Nora Pfieffer also lives at the center, allowing her to spend time with the children between her other ministries. Together they work in the garden, and on Fridays Nora hosts movie night. Nora loves all the hugs.

Nora Pfeiffer is a returned missioner who served in Cochabamba, Bolivia from 2009 to 2012. She currently works at Franciscans International – Bolivia.
