Today I’m excited to share with you the story of a group of women who came together with a vision and a dream to bring HOPE to others.
Kallie Dovel traveled to Northern Uganda in the summer of 2007. During her trip, she was able to see firsthand what life was like there. She befriended a group of women who made beautiful paper beads out of recycled paper and she knew there had to be a way she can help them. Not only help them expand their gift and product, but empower them to rise up from poverty and give them HOPE. Kallie returned to the US with a heart to create opportunities for these Ugandan women. Sharing her ideas and vision with a few friends, Kallie and her team quickly got to work and prepared a concept for a development organization. Then, 31 Bits was born. www.31bits.com
This is one of the stories that has inspired us to ACTION. God places these opportunities before us to expose people’s needs. We may see them in our community, in our schools, in our homes or even in another country while on a mission’s trip. What for?… For the purpose of doing something about it. God is the one that inspires us to want to love others and serve them. God has called us to DO.
James 1:22 says
Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
We are God’s hands and feet.
Ephesians 2:10 says
For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Isha Unfading Beauty, was also birthed from a vision to inspire and bring HOPE and encouragement to others, to You 😉 We were inspired by God’s love for us, to share it with you. To create a community for women that will be encouraging, uplifting and fun. Our desire is to serve you, to pray for you and to walk alongside you.
God has opened up doors of opportunities for us because we decided to turn that idea, that vision, into ACTION.
It may seem overwhelming on your own, so bring a team alongside you and allow God to take you on an awesome journey.
What has inspired you? What is that vision that God has placed in your heart to turn into ACTION?
