& our exciting new lately is that we are heading to Uganda this summer! :)
We have also been praying about how the Lord could use our gifts to create something to sell to help raise money. Since Ben loves to build & I love to paint, we came up with the idea of selling wooden crosses. They are $25 each and we can do any color/ any applique. 14" tall and come ready to hang on the wall. We have gotten a lot of custom orders lately (thank you!!), and here are pictures of some we have done.
Then the righteous will answer Him, "Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invited you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?"
The King will reply, "I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of Mine, you did for Me." Matthew 25: 35-40
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?"
And I said, "Here am I. Send me!" Isaiah 6:8
Here's a video from a ministry called the Mocha Club that we came to know in Nashville, TN when the Lord began our journey together serving African Refugees & began to stir in our hearts for the nations.
"It is Africa that has taught me that possessions in my hands will never be as valuable as peace in my heart. I've learned that I don't need what I have and that I have what I need. These are just a few of this continent's many lessons. I came here to serve and yet I've found that I have so much to learn, and Africa, with all its need, has much to teach me." -Mocha Club
