I ♥ Latvia

Update: As of June 6. 2010, I am offering any item-of your choosing- from my store to individuals who donate $50 to this mission, and, any three items – of your choosing- from my store for donations of $100.

I love Latvia – I have never been to the European continent. But I love Latvia.
I have met two of the kindest, most hard working, gifted women on etsy….they are both from Latvia.

I’d like to buy out their shops, if I could, yet….
To give Him, to lead someone to Him – and teach through His Word
is the best gift you could ever give anyone,
anytime, anywhere….

There is someone who is in Latvia, teaching and leading.
Calvary Chapel Latvia.

I learned that there is a young family in Santa Cruz, California who are going to Latvia, to assist Brenten with his mission. The Petriks.

I thought,” how can I help?”
I pray, and donate, and ask…

I ask, please make a donation to help send the Petriks to Latvia
I step out, in faith , and ask for donations.

you can donate online through CCSC’s online-giving.

(under “budget” choose “special missions” and under “notes” write “Petriks-Latvia”)

ANY AMOUNT HELPS ! and PRAYER is always greatly encouraged and welcomed :D

Perhaps this will be an extra nudge to get people moving and helping….because, well,
I ♥ Latvia

Thank you :D
my friends in Latvia are:

Sunlight and Cheer

Sun and light, yellow and amber, a cheerful necklace that brightens….
I enjoy using vintage materials that I have – unused stock, usually made in Japan – and combining that with components that I purchase from different artisans on etsy.

This necklace is such an example…the necklace chain is vintage Japan made textured steel links,
embellished with beautiful borosilicate glass beads, crocheted delicate blossoms, and handmade stainless steel closed loops.

The beads are the artistry of http://www.Gillianbeads.etsy.com
the blossoms are the artistry of http://www.TheHighPlainsKnitter.etsy.com
the closed rings are the artistry of http://www.mailliceinwireland.etsy.com

This necklace reminds me that the sun always shines…even when I can’t see it, …it is there. And that the Light of Lord Jesus shines always, through it all…even, and especially, when it doesn’t feel like He is there…He is.
