Many of you know I moved back home to live with my Dad in Texas a few years ago. He developed lung cancer and passed away last March. It was an adventure that brought us closer together and introduced me to the Church I serve even now.
I was constantly busy with Dad, but after his passing, I found myself looking for the "what's next." It's a change of seasons, a new focus, an old passion, and a big stamp of approval. I am launching my very precious, tender, and long-awaited baby -- welcome to BunnyNest Ministries! Ta-da!!
Oh my word - I am saying this out loud! That comes with a lot of pressure. Don't worry - God's got this. Over the next few weeks, I'll be sharing my testimonies. God has blessed me and directed me over and over. I spent every day of the last 4 months pestering Him for His appointment and listening to His reply.
God has shown me my next assignment. I'll be going on national and international mission trips, and, (I'm so stinking excited!) I'll be building a scholarship fund so that another person can go with me to learn how missions work. I believe my whole life has prepared me for this, and the next step is His perfect foot stone of my path.
From here forward, all purchases and donations (see my new missions support button upper right) will go into a fund that pays for mission trips and incidental supplies, along with that scholarship. If you buy a card or stamping supplies, pay for a lesson/class, finished artwork, camera stands, or anything else I can come up with -- it will all go toward missions funding (aside from shipping fees and replacing consumable supplies).
I'm going to need lots of prayers, too. I know it will be hard, sometimes dangerous, and exhausting. But I also know it will be worth it. So there you have it. My crazy, scary-big news. I promise you updates once the trips are scheduled and reports on where, what, who, when, etc. For now, I have to get busy making and selling things. I cannot do this without your love and support. I hope you're as excited as I am!
To celebrate this big, scary news - I made this darling card for a friend's birthday. I hope she likes it. She loves the bunnehs I bring to choir practice. Who doesn't?
And here's a tip - use a thin layer of glossy accents over any eyes on your project. That makes them come to life!
Ok - it's a long post and I know you have lots of important things to do. Thank you for spending a little time with me, and sharing in my news!
