Here is my own personal journal entry about the amazing weekend we had at the Christmas party for Persnickety Clothing Company, of which we are a part.
First of all, we enjoyed a whole week with our dear friends from Nicaragua, Marlin and Kenya, who came to visit for the event. They are the directors of our “Buying is Giving” program through Persnickety Clothing, and they do a fantastic job! They have been in charge of managing a group of seamstresses down there to create children’s uniforms.
Persnickety has given away over 8000 uniforms to children in their area in Nicaragua to date. And they also have arranged the delivery of all of these to the local schools.
We enjoyed doing some activities with them that they don’t typically get to do in their country, such as bowling, shopping for their baby they’re expecting, and taking them to see Zions National Park.
And the Persnickety Christmas party was just fun! The setting was unbelievable. The party was hosted in a huge cabin, featuring an indoor pool,
a very fun game room for the children,
and 13 bedrooms. It was like having our own resort all to ourselves!
This is what our room looked like. We thought we were in heaven!
We enjoyed good food, good conversation, and lots of fun!
I had to pull out my essential oils a couple times. One little girl had some head discomfort, so we put some peppermint oil on her temples and had her lie down.
Late that night after we had all eaten tons, a couple people complained about digestive trouble. So I got the peppermint out again (for myself too!)!
In the end, we all reflected on the amazing path that God has led us. Persnickety is growing fast and sharing lots of joy with the world!
PS – I’m going to be doing a Persnickety Clothing giveaway in the next few months, so be sure to check back!
