What Do These Two Things Have in Common?
What do these two things have in common? A mission trip. My summer mission trip. I am leading a group of women in June to Grace Centers of Hope in Pontiac, Michigan. We will work inside this house, called the Birdhouse, redecorating rooms for the men that live there. Those men are graduates of the program at this rescue mission and are working on getting their lives back together. I will be just like Ty Pennington, without the piles of money, big sponsors, and the bullhorn.
Each team member going on the trip must raise support money to pay for the paint and furniture and stuff we will want to put in the house to make it homey and comfy. I am raising my funds by selling bird jewelry.
You watched as I made the birds and branches and leaves and word charms. Now the jewelry is all together and the sale has begun. All the money I make from the sale will go to the mission trip. You can see all of the jewelry at http://www.divinedesignbirdhouse.blogspot.com/.
Please take a look, read the story, see the jewelry.
