Since announcing my crochet projects I have received so much encouragement from so many people. It really makes crocheting that much more enjoyable knowing why I’m doing it and that people support me. I get excited every time I pick up my needle and yarn. 🙂
So this package arrives…..
My mother-in-law is a pro knit/crochet”er” but has needed to take a break from the world of yarn. So last week she put all her extra yarn and even some scarves she had crocheted in a box to label at work and ship to me.
Aren’t they pretty! 🙂 Well before she could get everything packaged up she had quite a few ladies show interest in her scarves and PURCHASE them. She informed the ladies of what I was doing and they asked if she could send the money to me!!
Isn’t God so amazing. He’s already provided our first donation and I didn’t even have to make the product!
Because of the interest people have shown and just how much I enjoy doing this I started having a vision. In the back of my mind I’m always wondering “What will be MY thing? What will I do that will be for the Kingdom of God?” I know, I’m a mom and a wife, a daughter, sister, and friend. And all those things can most definitely glorify God. But I just have always felt like I wanna do something outside those things. Something specific that I’m passionate about that will bring glory to Him. And I think I’ve found it. I see this crocheting thing becoming big. I see us raising the funds to bring home our child and I see me continuing this ministry to help OTHERS bring home their children. I see this as a way for other people to contribute to His kingdom and bring home orphans from all over the world.
So that’s my vision…. and I believe in it! Now I just need a catchy name for this ministry….. 😉
