On Stand for Children’s Heart Surgeries

Jessica Thurley, March 21, 2013


Recently I was at an ICEJ conference in Billinge (Wigan), where I had a stand for Shevet Achim to raise funds and awareness! I was selling hand-made crafts and sets of cards on which were printed photos of flowers, boats, and wildlife I had photographed in Israel. I was amazed at how much of my stock went — most of my Israel cards were sold, and all my Star of David Hama Bead coasters! I was blessed to have sold so much, and I was very happy to have raised £112.60 for Shevet Achim!


Everyone was very generous and interested in what I was doing. I enjoyed making lots of bracelets, necklaces and suchlike beforehand, and I’m looking forward to making lots more for my usual stall at our church.


I love using the gifts God has given me to create crafts which I can sell to raise money for such a worthy cause as this ministry. I think the work they do is great and I want to help as much as I can! You’re never too young to start raising money or awareness, or even supporting the ministry with prayer. God can use all of us for His work! Jessica Thurley, North Wales
