This morning, our church gave out 33 boxes of staple foods, along with some eggs, fresh vegetables and a chicken to 33 different families in need in our community. 7 more families filled out forms and have been put on the waiting list.
What a joy it is to bless people who are struggling and to just reach out and let them know that someone really does care. More than that, to express to them that God really does care about them and their situation.
Here is a short video clip from last month, to let you see just a glimpse of what is happening here.
Do you enjoy scrapbooking, but you just don’t know how to make the time to do it? Do your days seem to be full to overflowing with just living and while you would enjoy taking the time to preserve the memories that make up the pieces of your daily life, the thought of adding just one more thing is overwhelming?
This is a great article by Jennifer Wilson from Simple Scrapper.

What is one thing you could do to find time to scrapbook?
The fact is you don’t have to have hours and hours, nor do you have to finish a huge photo book, in one sitting. I often find that I put off doing things, because I can only see a huge task before me, and it seems impossible to complete. But, when I start taking that same task apart and breaking it into smaller chunks, I seem that it really isn’t impossible.
Take that first step today, and start preserving the the beautiful Mosaic of Memories that make the pieces of your life!
This morning my family had the awesome opportunity to joined about 12 other people, and fill 33 boxes of staples, and 33 bags of fresh vegetables that will get handed out tomorrow by the Iglesia Bíblica Bautista de Manta. That is 13 more families that will be touched by this ministry this month than last month!!
It is so amazing to watch how God supplies and opens the doors to meet these needs. This month in addition to the regular items, each family will receive a whole chicken!
If you would be interested in helping with donations for this ministry please message me.
Blessings to you and yours!
Started working on a new kit this evening. I’ve been so preoccupied with getting things uploaded to the store, and figuring out how to do it all, that I haven’t had time to be creative. But tonight, I decided, to just put everything on hold, and enjoy playing around. I intended to just make 5 papers, to go in a Combo Pack, in honor of Father’s Day, but I got a little carried away, so here is a sneak preview of the 15 papers I made tonight…. the rest of the kit will follow soon!
The Memory Mosaic Store is up and running. We are starting out with Patriotic Themed set, entitled “Betsy’s Flag”. It may be purchased in a complete bundle or in smaller combo packs. There is also a paper pack and cluster set that goes with it.
There are 4 Kit sets, presently in the loading stage. They should all be “live” in the store next week!! I will be uploading a new product weekly or bi-weekly, so be sure to check back often.
Also keep your eyes open for our Grand Opening Sale!! (I just love a good sale!!) It will be coming soon!
Our church here in Manta, Ecuador has started some new ministries which we are calling, “Love in Action”.
Right now they are focused on a Food Pantry, to give boxes of staple foods to families in need once a month. This ministry is called, “Bendecidas para Bendecir” because we have been blessed we can bless others.
The Women’s Bible Study class has also started a ministry focused on reaching out to new mom’s at the local clinics. This ministry is called, “Bolsas de Bendición” or translated would be “Bags of Blessing”.
Saw this on facebook and thought it was really a neat idea.
Here is a photo my daughter took of my grand daughter,
What a special memory/keep sake.
