Let all that you do be done in love. 1 Cor 16 (New art series)

‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’

Jeremiah 29:11

A new project series underway,  my plan is to finish in September and It will a series of twelve paintings from photos of World Vision's work in the field.  All of them will be the same size and frames as the last series. 
Half way through painting my first painting my mother passed away, she was ill for a very long time and in a wheelchair,  with one health crisis after another. (she almost died many times)  I helped her with the caregiving and all her needs for over twenty five years. 
I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.Abraham Lincoln

"The gift of clean water"

"Moving Mountains"
 I was so inspired by these two so I decided to paint them even though I knew it would be hard to do.  Andrew and Callixte were mortal enemies during the Rwandan genocide. They are best friends now and when they pray together they move mountains,

"The world changer" (on reserve) Sold for hungry kids
 This painting is from a photo taken from Megan Pratt / World Vision of a volunteer "Dee Billing" visiting her sponsor child in Uganda.  The first time I met this lady was at a conference,  she was praying over all the cubeicals of the staff in the building.  I think she’s a pretty remarkable lady doing what she does in her eighties and I just couldn’t resist the sweet interaction in the photo.  (and of course the chicken) :) 

Donate to my art project to help feed the hungry, some of the greatest needs are with displaced families and children from fleeing conflict, war or famine. 

My hope is to see many children sponsored through this art project and share the wonderful photos and stories by other world changers like you. 

Won't you join me? 

Pray for me as I work on this and my hope is to be finished in September. 
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Phil 4:13
Today as you pray, remember that God's timing
 is often different than ours.

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.  For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in,  I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you?  When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
Matthew 25:34-40
