doing more - stepping out in faith

earlier this summer alana, my bestie since we were knee high to a grasshopper, and i were planning what exciting things to do next summer.
last summer we road tripped it to Montreal and Quebec City. it was an amazing time we sight saw, shopped, got to do a photo shoot, and relax.
we both love to travel, so travel was what we wanted to do!
we decided that the southern states would be the place to go as we have both never been there.

but with all that has gone on this past week God has laid it on my heart to do something more.

instead of just traveling and being a tourist, why not put our able bodies to work and
help others
while being down there.
my heart aches for those who have lost so much in the past from such horrific storms and then they loose it all again.

so what am i able to do.
i want to give.
i love to give.
i am not able to give financially.
so why not give of the time and energy that God has blessed me with?

i have been feeling lead to serve with MDS - mennonite disaster service, but have just never followed that calling. so why not this time?
i need to listen to God calling me to step out in faith.

from now til next summer 100% of the sales in my shop will go towards this trip. i may not be placed in exactly the areas that hurricane irene has hit but i will be placed where there is help needed. if for whatever reason i am unable to go all the money will go directly to MDS to help aid in the many service projects they are apart of.

check out the huge sale going on right now in the shop!
everything is 50% off... wowza!
