"MAYVALL" ORPHAN BAG

front back
inside of purse
outside w/ leather handles

IT IS NOT READY FOR PURCHASE YET, BUT I COULDN'T CONTAIN MYSELF ... The refugees are doing a fabulous job and we just found out today that one of them is from JINJA (where our children are) ... God you are amazing !!! This bag will surely be a conversation starter, a seed planter, a water to someone's spirit, and bring light to the ORPHAN CRISIS ... Follow this with me ... We are having a bag made by local refugees from Africa to help support their families here, and when you purchase the bag it will feed a child in Katie's program for a month, plus you just walking around with the bag daily will be lighting the way for someone else to join us in our FIGHT to help the 147 MILLION ORPHANS ... Seriously, we are going to CHANGE THE WORLD ... I am begging you to not do any Christmas shopping till you see all the products we are creating ... new long sleeve t-shirts, funky baseball t-shirts, scarves, clutches, handbags, messenger bags, new frayed hats, and the Uganda Bead Necklaces are coming in ... You could probably feed a village full of children for a month with your purchases of the 147 Million Orphans products at Christmas alone ... WE WILL CHANGE THE WORLD ... God has gifted each of differently to do HIS work here on earth ... Let's all join together and show off the gifts and talents granted to us by the LORD... Please grab our new button (top right sidebar) and help us spread the word ... If you are in need of fundraising help with your adoption, please contact us twomoms13kids@gmail.com .. We have two ways we can help you ... Blessings Family !!!

I'm still wrecked from your tears yesterday... can't believe his own mama didn't think about the experience from HIS perspective... you brought me a whole new point of view which is so simple once I thought about it, but I had missed it! I love you! I will be getting a bag.

Lindsey said...

Can't wait to see all of the great stuff!

I love the bag Gwen and can't wait to order one! Spencer wore his orphan t-shirt to school the other day and got to share all about your mininstry with his friends and teachers who asked about it. I love how God is using you! You are truly a beautiful reflection of his light!

Jodi Widhalm said...

The bags are SO awesome! I can't wait to have one! We may be calling you soon to do fundraising.

We've been praying and researching adoption for a few months. Now...with no prompting, my three sons are asking EVERY DAY for SISTERS!!! 2 of them! Don't know how we'll find the money, but our family (of 5 - 2 parents & 3 boys) seems to be getting LONELY! It's amazing. I can't believe it!

Your blog and Katie's and several others has been so inspiring. Thank you so much for sharing your hearts and lives with us. I feel as though we are friends even though we've never met or even spoken.

It's so exciting and overwhelming to be in the center of HIS will and see miracles happen! I'm thrilled to be part of the adventure!

Shonni said...

I love that bag and can't wait till it is ready!!!

Jewels of My Heart said...

Oh, I love it!!!!!!!!
As soon as I can sew something to sell and come up with the money I will be buying as much as I can.
What an incredible ministry this is... I know Jesus is going to work through this in a mighty way!
Thank you!
