Coffee and Dresses Success

IMG_3393

Thanks to everyone who came out to Solid Rock Coffee House on Saturday to learn more about our ministry. And thanks for understanding if I looked like I didn’t know what I was doing (because I really didn’t know what I was doing.)

We so greatly appreciate the donations we received. From flower girl dresses and velcro to fabric and cash, we are excited about the items we will have in our next shipment! I shouldn’t be surprised at the support because when God leads you to do something he always provides, but I’m still a little overwhelmed when I think of how he provides over and over again.

Learn more about  where we are sending the sewing items and formal dresses in this Today’s Christian Woman article. And be sure to check out Mission to Haiti too.

We’re excited about the donations, but we’re also excited to give a few things away to say thanks. The following are the winners of the drawings

1.  $20 Solid Rock Gift Card (donated by Sara at Solid Rock. Thank you Sara!!) – Jayme Wilken

2. American Girl Doll outfit – Erica Thorson

3. Hope for Haiti children’s book – Cheryl Patterson

Highlighting Heartline Ministries

I recently connected with Tara Livesay, who has been loving and serving Haitians in the city of Port-au-Prince for the past eight years. She shared a post at 26 Letters as a part of my Sanctity of Life month guest posts, and I wanted to highlight it here too.

I love what they are doing, and I am sure you will too. Take a look at her Hope Realized guest post and head on over to the following website links to learn more about the Livesays and Heartline Ministries.

Haiti Children’s Book Giveaway

Haiti book giveway copy

We are giving away a beautifully illustrated hardcover children’s book to kick off the new year and to thank you for supporting our ministry.

Simply leave a comment (here or on our facebook page) about a New Year’s resolution or a memorable gift you have received and your name will be placed in the drawing.

Hope for Haiti is a story about the power of a simple gift in the aftermath of a terrible earthquake. Even today the country is still feeling effects from the earthquake that devastated the capital city in 2010.

Mom and I are excited to start making dresses and accepting donated items for our first 2014 shipment to Haiti. We plan to send a bunch of sundresses and shorts along with a box full of needed items for the Dorcas Ministry Shop. (Take a peak at my previous post to see a list of items they have requested.)

Stay tuned for info on an upcoming local (Huxley, Iowa) event.
