These beautiful ladies from church,
and several more who aren't pictured,
|Saturday crafting at our home|
have been crafting and creating
and enjoying time together since August.
|a few of the crafts we've made|
Our goal was to host a Christmas Craft Fair where we would raise some money
for ministries of the Women of the Church.
And then Typhoon Haiyan struck, and the goal changed
to help those in greater need.
Last Saturday morning we opened the gates of our driveway,
and held the first ever neighborhood craft fair.
We invited other local women to join us -
women who cook and craft and create
to supplement their families' incomes.

It was such a fun morning!
An exciting chance to share talent and hard work with others in the community,
and to raise funds to bless others who have so little.
This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of the Lord's people
but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God.
2 Cor. 9:12 NIV
May our thanksgiving to God overflow in all we do!
