I am taking a "random" road trip this July
with my 'little girl', Skyler.
We started planning this trip about 9 months ago
and it was simply going to be a road trip
with no agenda.
We were going to find some
Diners, Drive-In's and Dives,
take back roads and my camera.
Check out some junk stores.....
several many days of relaxed fun.
It's not changed in that sense.
What has changed is that we now
have a mission!
I love, love, love it when God speaks to me
and I'm quiet enough to hear Him.
In thinking about the trip, He told me
that turning it into a short mission trip
would give it meaning.
It would give us more of a chance to
be a vessel for God.
Whenever I travel I always
do what I can to be a vessel for God.
I pay other people's tolls, anonymously.
I pay for other traveler's meals, anonymously.
And, I am extremely blessed each time
I do a random act of kindness.
(if you've never done a random act of kindness,
give it a try - it's the bomb.)
You've probably figured out our mission...
we are going to volunteer for two days
at a Center for Women and Families
in the eastern part of the U.S.
Basically a shelter for victims of
domestic violence or rape.
(because of confidentiality I can't tell you any more than that)
We are so excited to be a part of
the healing process of
these women and children.
We will be helping them create art.
Here's where YOU come in.
Here's where you can be a part of the healing process.
We'll be supplying the art supplies to make journals
and keepsake boxes out of cigar boxes.
We could use some help with these supplies
so if you are interested in helping with
glue sticks, patterned paper (for women and children),
AND/OR AN ENCOURAGEMENT CARD OR TAG FOR
THE WOMEN AND FOR THE CHILDREN,
please do what you can and
mail everything to me.
Don't sign your name on the cards/tags,
And, don't "address" OR seal the envelopes. (This is sooooo exciting!!)
and add a note of encouragement in your card or on your tag back.
I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE ENOUGH CARDS/TAGS
WOMAN AND CHILD IN THE CENTER.
Those will touch these hurting women and children
more than money.
Think about it - receiving a letter of encouragement from
someone that doesn't even know you. WOW.
God bless y'all and
if you can help with some of the above,
And, if you can't, would you please pray
that we can be effective representatives of Jesus Christ
and that the women and children who we encounter
will see Jesus in our eyes and in our actions.
