A Splash of Serenity in Bosnia


In ten days Dan and I fly to Bosnia. We carry with us a suitcase filled with yarn and a heart filled with love. We'll return with a suitcase filled with lace and a heart filled with hope for the people of this war-torn country.

The Bosnian Lace Project is one of the ways the Christian and Missionary Alliance is helping in practical ways. I wish you could see some of the toothless grins of these dear women who trust the Lord and our sales will bring them dinner tonight. Won't you help bring a splash of serenity to their valuable lives? Please read the following article by clicking "share" and ask yourself what you can do.

As with your books, I always give gifts of Bosnian lace and even treated myself to a beautiful purse last fall at Refocus. It's a wonderful gift to give and not "wasted money". Good reminder friend! Praying your trip there is smooth, safe, and a blessing to them and you. See you at District Conference in March.

Thanks, Diane.

Daisy, isn't it wonderful serving our Savior! Such satisfying work with a great Boss.

See you in March, Diane and Daisy.
