Fudraiser exceeds expectations!

Excitement as event is well supported:

A group of 'Ambassadors for the Poor' were thrilled recently as their fund raising event exceeded their expectations. The Group from Port Seton in East Lothian, Scotland really enjoyed their day as they served coffee and sold craft items to the public, who came in considerable numbers to support the event.

Busy Community Centre:
The group hired a large room in the local community centre and set up their stalls and laid out tables there. Some sold crafts they had made themselves and others catered for the visiting shoppers with tea, coffee and an array of delicious cakes and biscuits. "Everyone had a lovely time and went home feeling like their hard work would make a difference to someone". A Mission International display was set up to help answer questions and give more information to interested visitors.

Making a difference for someone:

"Doing it is doing it"!

It seems like a very obvious statement 'Doing it is doing it', but very often we find ourselves thinking about it, discussing it, dreaming about it and so on but never actually getting round to doing it. That's why it is so refreshing to find folks who are willing just to get on a 'Do it'. A 'Go And Do It' couple from Port Seton in East Lothian, Jim and Beatrice McMurray, are continually serving the poor by making crafts for sale to raise funds for Mission International, as well as making clothes and blankets to be distributed to the poor in Africa (see photo above). Their efforts have encouraged all of us in Mission International as well as made a difference to those who have nothing in Africa. Keep on 'Doing it' Jim & Beatrice!
