I'll be heading out in just a bit with my oldest daughter and oldest son to the Belhaven Market. It's an outdoor event held on Saturday's in one of our area's truly beautiful and unique neighborhoods. We'll be selling our GraceWorks jewelry to raise money for daughter A's mission trip to Swaziland, handcrafted wooden pens and pencils to raise funds for my son D's Boy Scout Jamboree next year, and Swaziland Timbali Craft purses. The profits from the purses go to directly support the women who made them...mostly widows and grandmothers who are struggling to financially support several children. Also, we be selling lovely, handmade, embroidered pillows that my friend Drewe Llyn made. The money from them will be split between Anna's trip and other African ministries.
So would you please pray for us? Pray that we'll have plenty of sales. Pray that we'll be able to tell other people about the people of Swaziland and get them involved with ministering to the "least of these" living there. And pray that we'll be a blessing to all those we encounter.
Thanks in advance and I'll report later on how things go!
