Blossom – Muckamore Presbyterian
This was my first event taking a craft and jewellery party.
The Blossom Ladies from Muckamore Presbyterian had asked me to come and share with them.
We made flowers from twine, similar to those we use on our Nkateko packaging, and layered them up on canvases with burlap and decorated them with ribbons, stampers and buttons.
While explaining the craft we thought about how we can put our rootsinto God’s Word, be individual, the fragrance of Christ,let our light shine like a sunflower, and how we can support the
ladies in Mozambique as they do this too. It was amazing to see with the same materials how different our individual designs were. Thank you so much ladies!
Last night Helping Hands had their second event highlighting the needs of those who live with disability. The key speaker was Craig McMillan who shared a message that spoke straight to everyone’s heart, because while very personal he reminded us of the underlying truth that each of us have our struggles throughout life. But throughout his testimony he was pointing us all to the One who walks beside us through it all, and has a bigger plan for the way He is shaping us to become more like him. Craig’s personal testimony somehow became a personal message tailored to each individual. Clearly God’s Spirit moving through what he had to share. I am very thankful to have been able to have been there and heard it. If I am wise I will take this message to heart and let it change me when I look back at my life or am tempted to feel inadequate. God has made us and shaped us for His own purpose and placed us where we are; to live, love and serve right where He wants us to be.
Also it was encouraging and exciting to see people responding to the Kelly’s message with open and willing hearts to be used in whatever way they can to make a difference to those in need materially and spiritually. Sharon reminded everyone that you don’t have to be ‘young’ to go on a mission team; God looks at the heart and uses people who are willing to be used for His glory.
