Maker's Faire!

We are sooooo excited to be asked to return to the Maker's Faire this year! Everyone is getting ready to have skeins of FUN!

Maker's Faire will be on Saturday, June 21st at the Incubator in McAllen. (That's the old library on Main Street) Our booth will be downstairs, right by the back door.

You know one of the many blessings of last year was getting to meet a whole lot of new people. Mary and Patti had so much fun that they jumped right and have been coming to the Thursday group ever since! And in no time, Mary invited some friends and here she is teaching them how to loom knit, too.  

We have all had a blast together getting to share ideas and see all the cool things everyone does. Easy-Peazy and what great friends God brings around the loom!

We would LOVE to have you join us, too! Come be a KnitWit!

The next trip to China leaves on April 9th!!!  
We just sent off a box stuffed with shawls and hats to our friend Mary, who is heading up the team from her church. We are so grateful to be able to help and you can help too, with your prayers! It is a real blessing to come along side all the wonderful people God has sent our way! 

It has been a very busy start to 2014 and SOOO hard to believe that April is almost here! We have had such exciting news from many that have received shawls and is always a real encouragement to hear just a little bit of what God is doing! 

Here is a little note from the latest China trip:

I’ve been home from an amazing trip to China for almost a week now: Yinyan Huang and I went to Beijing and Tianjin, taught in businesses and churches, over 200 people received training and 25+ put their faith in Christ! One despondent & suicidal lady was transformed by His grace and even in the silk market, 3 young girls received Christ as Savior (see picture attached)! 

It was my 13th trip and well over 4,000 have received training with so many decisions.  It is humbling and amazing that God uses us in this way and is allowing us to help equip what I believe will be the largest force for evangelism the world will ever see. Indeed, the Chinese have sent 100,000 missionaries to the US in the last 10 years and the need for solid training is profound...

Ready, Set....KNIT!

We are all very happily doing just that...knitting away! Boxes of hats went off to Mexico for Christmas, so we are all getting back to work  
Our thanks to yet another friend for the yarn she donated just before Christmas ~ Thank you Diane!!! 
We are filling the bags and baskets up with scarves and shawls...more rainbows in the making!
All of your help sure does help us get started again with fun things for China and wherever else God is shipping things this year...March is just around the corner and that is our next ship date for China. Thanks ahead of time for all you prayers and support in this ministry!

 You can check out Mexico updates from our friend Melody, here on their blog....
One of their outreaches is to a community of families that live on the city dump, just south of us, in Reynosa, Mexico. Their stories are many and Melody shares them there on the blog. Your continued prayers are greatly appreciated. We never fully know another's story, but Melody and her husband so joyfully enter the lives of these people with The Most Important Story, our Jesus. What a blessing it is to be able to help in any small way.  

We have new friends joining in on Thursdays and that makes this all the more fun. God is blessing us with good times together, sharing ideas and yarn and definitely a few grins and giggles along the way!

Prayers & Purls!!!
