A herd of milk cows, a flock of sheep, a battalion of "hugging Christian grannies" and enough school supplies to fill a warehouse. These were all part of the final accounting for the Christmas Market at La Cañada Presbyterian Church, an outreach project that raised $102,361 for needy causes around the world and across the Arroyo Seco. "God gets all the credit for this," said the Rev. Jim Milley, associate pastor for outreach and equipping at La Cañada Presbyterian Church. Contributions were up a staggering 76 percent from the previous year's Christmas Market, which meant a number of the church's ministry partners got a much-needed boost.
