Last week I attended a Board meeting for the Rockwood/Stone Pastoral Charge... After a short presentation they were kind enough to agree to each take a donation bin! Thank you to the kind people at the Rockwood/Stone PC!

Today our ministry was blessed with the work of 14 amazing woman from Speedside United Church, who in less than one day made 378 hand made PENCILCASES!!!
I arrived to find these ladies organized into a fast paced production line that was turning out 50+ pencil cases per hour! As is par for the course I timed my arrival just in time for a delicious lunch also made by some of the women...
This whole day was organized and co-ordinated by Mrs. Edna Harper, who not only oversaw the production today, but has created a few hundred more of these cases all on her own... What an amazing person... what amazing people...
The children who will receive school supplies from us will now be getting a beautiful, hand made, draw string case to store them in. Every single yard of fabric and notion needed to make them was generously donated by people in the congregation...
All I can say from the bottom of my heart is THANK YOU!!!!
Here are a few pictures of the production team in action:
