An Inspiring Weekend

This past weekend I had the opportunity to travel to Hershey, Pa with two of my best friends to a women's conference called Women of Purpose. It was so much fun! We went to sell artwork for Inspire, an art ministry that we lead at the University of Valley Forge. All the proceeds go directly to Project Rescue to help women that have been rescued from human trafficking all around the world. If you'd like to read more about their mission, go here.

We spent the first day meeting people and talking about the ministry and selling a few pieces. The next day we got to sit in on a session and worship with Christy Nockels. It was so powerful, what a voice and heart of worship she has!
At the end of the day before we headed home, we decided to count the money that we had raised. We were so excited to see how much we and to give Project Rescue. Before we counted, we praised God for opening doors. As we counted the money, we praised God for his provision. After we finished counting, we screamed and rejoiced for God's blessing and goodness. We had raised... drumroll please.... $1,115 to donate to help the women that were rescued my Project Rescue receive shelter, clothing, food, and an education. God is soooo good!

I won't lie, this weekend called for a lot of caffeine!
We would be no where without the donations of artwork from students at Valley Forge and without the interest that all those wonderful women had at the conference. Thank you so very much for your prayers and interest in the ministry! We've really seen God's working hand throughout the entire weekend, and throughout the past few months as we see the ministry grow and bring light to the horrors of human trafficking!

In addition to Women of Purpose, Inspire was asked to do a live painting at Glad Tidings, my home church. It was to celebrate the CD release concert that we had that night! It was fantastic and the worship was so authentic and beautiful. The team did a great job, as well as all the behind the scenes work done by the staff. I am so blessed to go to such a big church that focuses on community, love, and spiritual growth. This weekend just reminded me how wonderful God is and how great community is when we're all striving to see the same things happen.
