The Glitter Gals

The Lights of Christmas Outdoor Artistic Designer, Laurie Fertello, gave the July 2022 SOWER ladies the name “The Glitter Gals.” SOWERS (Servants On Wheels Ever Ready) come as couples in their RVs to work for three weeks at a time before moving on to serve at another Christian organization. This year we had SOWERS in June, July, August, and September.

During the summer, SOWER ladies usually work in, or outside, the paint shop with Laurie. The July ladies were tasked with repurposing glittered stars. They removed all the glitter, repainted the stars, and put more glitter on them.

This group of ladies had more fun than any other group of SOWERs we can remember. Their bursts of laughter were often heard from the surrounding areas of Camp as they told stories and worked together. These ladies, and their husbands, had not met before but became fast friends and decided to keep in touch and meet again at other SOWER projects.

One of the ladies, a retired teacher, is known for her dislike of glitter. She never allowed it in her classroom or her home. Now, after leaving Camp, she reports still finding it in her RV and her clothes! She doesn’t mind though. The ladies even wrote a song about glitter and all the places you find it that they sang to Laurie and again at staff break.

SOWER ladies usually only work in the mornings, but Laurie reported these gals often came back in the afternoons to be together and get more done. When the couples weren’t working, they had game nights, movie nights, dinners and outings together, and connected with staff and other volunteers. They prayed for and encouraged each other and our staff. It was a delight to have them!

Blessed and Uplifted

My daughter recently attended the Pony Club Horse Management Camp in Port Orchard with the Warm Beach Horsemanship Pony Club. This was her first away from home event and only her second Pony Club event. She was quite nervous about being away from home and me not being able to join her until late in the evening after the first day’s events. Thankfully, she was blessed by wonderful chaperones who encouraged and reassured her as well as went to classes ...

Calling People Back Home

"Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand." -Isaiah 41:10 NLT The people of God have been scattered everywhere. The Lord has not forgotten them. Kings and nations in whose land God’s people live are making, assembling, and putting their trust in man-made idols. Kings of nations are bewildered at how it is these scattered ...

When Abundance Happens

“Listen, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord alone. And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up. ...
