Update on the Mina

I wanted to update you on the Mina project that we did last week.   Hubby, myself and my mom started with $30. We had our little gold party and the gold procurer paid us a percentage of the total sales in cash. We made $493!!! We were able to help a family pay a water bill, another one buy coats, shoes and clothes for, donate $100 gift card to a family that desperately needed money to purchase coats and help a couple other families with Christmas gifts for their kids.  I feel like it was a successful mina project and thoroughly enjoyed serving these families.  Go Here to read about the Mina Project if you don't know what I am talking about.

I can't wait to hear how our church did as a whole. I am hearing stories from my friends who multiplied their money by 10 or 15 times! Yay! It's awesome because of how many families in our community are in need this Christmas. Maybe just a few can feel some peace because of this project.

That is awesome! God is so good & rewards our faithfulness in unique ways. I'd like to host one of those parties in Jan. or Feb. if you could send me the info.
Hope you have a glorious Christmas!
