Recently our pastor and his wife left for an encouragement trip to missionaries in the Philippines sent by our church 20 years ago. 20 years in the field! Perhaps this is normal, but I didn’t grow up in the church and it seems extraordinary to me!
He asked the church members to send cards of encouragement. There was just enough time for me to stitch this piece for them.

Prayer: Father, please bless this family which has devoted so much of their life to your service and service of your people. Bring them an ever closer walk, unexpected joys, long worked for successes, wisdom for their path.
I love seeing 2nd and 3rd versions of your creations. “Leap for Joy” is one of my favorites, both because of the design and because of the message. Glad to see you back!
