Candle In The Corner

Heidi, over at Moms, Ministry and More is hosting a different kind of event. A bunch of us missionaries have donated items and Heidi is going to spotlight the countries and missionaries who are participating. She was thinking how "even a candle can brighten the darkness" and came up this intriguing idea to promote and support missions efforts around the world.

Here is the schedule showing which country and ministry will be featured each day (notice Just A Southern Girl is on the schedule for November 7th):
October 28 - SPAIN - Dani Joy
October 29 - PORTUGAL - Nina
October 30 - INDONESIA - Sarah
November 2 - SOUTH AFRICA - Jen
November 3 - RUSSIA - Ashley
November 4 - PARAGUAY - Julie
November 5 - UGANDA - Kelly
November 6 - BRAZIL - Ana
November 7 - ARGENTINA - me!
November 9 - BOTSWANA -Sarah
November 10 - CAMPUS MINISTRY - Jessie
I don't have the link to Ashley in Russia yet, but as soon as I do I'll share it.

A wonderful opportunity to learn more about missions and see what God is doing in those places we refer to as "the uttermost part of the earth".

Moi is donating a nice leather wallet...  

...with two kinds of leather: the regular kind and leather from the carpincho, a South American, semi-aquatic mammal that lives only in north of Argentina (and some parts of Brazil and Paraguay) in the marshy swamp grounds and rivers of the Corrientes Province. That's the lighter brown you see on the bottom half of the wallet. Wouldn't this make a great gift for your hubby?!

Please note that I'm not hosting nor giving anything away. I'm donating the wallet and other missionaries are donating items from their countries but all the action takes place over at  Moms, Ministry and More, so make sure you go there to enter.

Winners will be announced on November 11th.

See, I told you it was a different kind of event :-)
