I made a sample of a Psalm 23 book in order to leave it with the leader in Peru. I did not bring my original, but I was happy to collage another accordion book in response to Psalm 23. Women may process their own stories while collaging Psalm 23. I pray this sample book will spur on many women in sharing their stories and God’s story of redemption.

Here is Eisleen when she and I painted papers in Peru for her to use in collaging her own books. What a fun day in Peru!

Lots of water and several colors of paint!

We painted a variety of colors so Eisleen will have a nice supply.

I use collaged art books to teach and convey Jesus’ heart for women. (I could only do this work with my amazing translators! Thank you, Flor!) This book is the story of Jesus’ encounter with the woman at the well found in the Gospels.

Eisleen is planning on using collaged art books to teach the women she leads in Peru. She recently created two pages of a book she is working on to tell the story of Jesus’ encounter with the woman caught in adultery.

Eisleen’s first two pages of her book. I look forward to seeing her completed book.

 

Art Engaging Story – Peru

I am headed to beautiful Peru in just a few short hours. I am looking forward to serving women and children, with a great team of women, in Trujillo, Peru. We’ll land in Lima and head north to this coastal town. I am partnering with Helping Hands, International for this trip.

The Andies Mountains! I’ve only read about them.

The Lord God is my Strength, my personal bravery, and my invincible army; He makes my feet like hinds’ feet and will make me to walk, not to stand still in terror, but to walk, and make spiritual progress upon my high places of trouble, suffering, or responsibility! Habakkuk 3:19   We are going with God!
