Happy Mother’s Day!
AMAZING GIRL REUNION
HI! This is a wonderful time given by the Lord, and I am grateful. Just last Sunday we had an Amazing Girl Reunion. It was lovely to b together again, know how each one was fairing, and to plan for new things.
The girls proposed that we invite more girls from the church, actually have all girls welcome to the meeting, the parties. They still hold my home as their preferred place of meeting. They would also like us to come up with a magazine, and also have different speakers – older girls and ladies that they admire. They want the regular monthly parties to resume. It’s clear that these had been greatly missed.
We plan to hold a Make-Up Party in August, followed closely by an Art Party to create invitations for the December party in which all young girls from our church will be welcome. I told them that this was quite a lot of work, and that it would require a lot of their help; that they would become officials and take up different roles. To say that there was excitement in the air would be an understatement. And to have the Senior Pastor’s support and encouragement is positively overwhelming. (Rev. Simon Kabocho, Senior Pastor, CCIT).
So now I’m grateful to God for those happenings, as well as the continued ministry to the girls in my life – it is certainly a privilege from the Lord. I will keep you updated on the parties and our activities.
Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers!
Today (Sunday 13th May 2012) is Mother’s Day, a day on which we get to celebrate our mothers. It really should be Mother’s Day (Anna Jarvis, one who fought to have this day established, was very particular about the position of the apostrophe) the day on which each person gets to honor his/her mother.
And I think that is something we ought to do – thank them for giving their very lives for our good; tending us when we were young, encouraging us as we grew up, tolerating us too, and praying for us, and then releasing us out into the world to fly as we chase our dreams. Mothers, dear mothers. The things they go through because of their children are insurmountable; they make sacrifices great and costly, and love us deeply, enduringly and continually. God bless mothers!
Oh, a lot has been going on, such as the Leaders Alive Conference in Thika, Kenya. I will be sharing some of the teachings from this conference soon. The theme was “Leading in Changing Times,” and in these times of such great change, we could all use the lessons that were taught there.
God bless you big as you continue to live in Him and obey Him.
Yours in His vineyard,
