A place to come, sit, pull up a chair and talk about what is going on with Salty Sidewalks.
As most of you know - we are collecting Salt Leaks for 900 women, for a conference on March 7th, As of right now - I have 328 that have been sent to me from all over the world.....if w get all that have been pledged to us, we will be able to bless the workers and the hotel staff as well...praise God for "loaves and fishes"!!!
Yesterday, we asked, and you heard! There were an overwhelming amount of pledges yesterday and we have nearly reached our target of 900 salt leaks - what an amazing day to see all the flurry of activity and pledges - amazing!!! What an awesome community, so welcoming and encouraging! I am- simply overwhelmed by it all.
I wanted to share one of the stories from yesteday"
"These were my last batch of ATC's for the conference...phew. Finished these tonight. With the flags, I was thinking about women in the military or possibly military wives who may be at the conference. I did up a couple more of the key ring cards as well. I did 12 total of the flag ATC's. Keeping it real, I struggled. I have tremors a lot, so I did my best. Let God take care of the rest, right? I'm reminding myself of what I said this morning. Perfection not required. A heart for God and people required. And that is all. So, a nice big salty box will go off to Miss Lisa when this silly snowstorm is done with us sometime Tuesday with items made for the conference. I am SO grateful to the Lord for allowing me the time to do this for these women. I am also grateful to all of you who are reaching out as well. Love you guys!!!"
We are out to love a region through the salt of creative expression! We will be participating in a JOY conference, in Advance NC, on March 7th. We are looking to bless an entire region- by blessing the NINE HUNDRED women that are attending the conference with a salt leak!!
We would like to send each women home with a creative outpouring of the Gospel, presented with love, IN love- to hungry hearts.
Imagine them taking their salt leak home and telling their families about it, blessing gives way to blessing.....love and generosity open doors and crumble steel resolve.
Our thoughts are to have a "vendor table" - but this vendor table will be different than every other table there. Women will be allowed to shop for the piece that speaks to them and they will be given it with a prayer of peace and joy.
Want to help bless a region? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info!
We are praying that He can multiply our efforts - at this point we only have 200 leaks - and we need so much help. Would you consider pushing up your sleeves and joining us?
Let's agree to bless a region, and then pray that the Lord would continue bringing us spaces and places where we can shine His love. Welcome to this creative army He has called forth for a day such as this - now, let us fight the darkness with beauty and scripture!!
