Gel Nail Polish. The new thing in town, way better than regular nail polish. There’s a way it sets and serves the wearer for a good, long time without chipping or fading. The first time I got this done on me, the nail expert said that it was better to start it off a little distance from the base. In my view, that made it look like my nails had stayed with the polish for a while. 🙁
On the 17th of August, we shall visit the Vumilia Youth Group IDP Camp again, this time to be part of their Talent Show. There will be singing, dancing and modeling, and they have asked me to speak to them, once again. It would be good to take some sanitary towels to them and I hope we can partner once again and share God's love in this way. They may be about 100 girls this time, since there will be girls visiting from other camps in the area.
Hosted on Hope FM's Binti Program
This past Saturday, I was hosted on Hope FM's Binti Program from 4pm to 6pm, by Grace Kirwaye, the host. Binti is a ladies' program that happens on Saturdays. This year, they will be having about 50 ladies on the program, and I must say I feel honored to have been one of them. I thank God for this great start of the year for me and for Amazing Girl Ministry.
Back to School
In other news, most of the girls have gone back to school, and I miss them dearly already. I can't wait for our Long Midterm party!! There will also be new girls in attendance.
Blessings For You
May God bless you beyond your wildest dreams. He is able. His thoughts are not our thoughts, and His ways are way above ours. He is able to do exceedingly above all that we can think, ask or imagine. He is able to give you the desires of your heart. And so my prayer for you is to receive that which you desire, in God's awesome way.
Yesterday was a wonderful day for us Amazing Girls. We had a lovely party at my house, all 9 of us. Rachel (our pastor), Joy, Ivy, Gloria, Faith, Grace, Eva, Sylvia and myself. We had a bread party and cooked bread in different ways – we made toast, and two types of sandwiches. This we did as we caught up – it’d been a while since we’d all met, and what with the national exams!
We were all glad to be together, happy to realize that we were all doing well, and elated to be in God and in His favor. We discussed some girly things, which I will of course not write about here – but just so you know, we had tones of fun, laughter and bonding.
And yes, there was added emphasis to include many other girls in the parties. So we came up with a plan.
We came up with a leadership team. I have two assistant leaders now, one for the bigger girls and one for the younger girls. We have different girls taking care of PR, topics, finances, hospitality, and records. The girls chose the roles for themselves, each according to their talents and personality – things we have been learning about over the years. All Girls' Party: The next party, that will include all the girls, will be held next year during the ‘Long Mid Term”, when all the schools will be on a break during that election period. There will be a minimal fee charged, to facilitate for the snacks – I usually cater for that, but the girls suggested it, and really, it will be good, in order to make the parties more manageable. It was also decided that the leadership team would have trial parties before the actual parties, for planning purposes e.g. a pool party for the leadership team as we plan for the pool party for everyone else. Awesome! I’m really excited about the turn that this is taking. God is good, and we all thank Him for His favor and grace upon us.
In closing, let me share a verse that has been a blessing to me over the past few months this year of restoration. May the Lord shower these blessing on you.
After you have suffered a little while, what will Jesus do for you? 1 Pet 5:10
He will personally do these things to you: restore, perfect, support, strengthen, confirm, establish, make you firm and steadfast, and place you on a firm foundation and settle you. You will be empowered, confirmed and established in Him to eternity.
