Comment by Arlene Guerin yesterday

You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.  Matthew 5:14-16

I think of this when I look at the lovely photos taken at the distribution centres and put into the Challenges and on the Photo pages.  I always think that the pictures let the world see the good that KAS can do.  Love to all at KAS

Praying for the poor refugees of Iraq.  You can send a letter or card to Iraq Christian refugees if you like, but it has to get to a mailing address in Santa Ana, California, by September 10th. If you wish to mail one, they will personally take the letters and cards to the refugees as part of their work. They did this for the poor family members of the girls taken from the school in Nigeria, for example. It helps the people to know that people in the world care. The website is:

Love to all at KAS. May the Lord help us through our troubles so we can help others.

Hope everyone is doing okay.  I admit my knees have been really painful but that does mean I've got more time for crafting and crocheting. Well I tried doing a 5 pointed star pattern the other day...I ended up with 8 points!  Might just have to retry that one!  This favorite hymn I thought I would share with you: "As I have loved you, love one another.  This new commandment, love one another. By this shall men know, ye are my disciples. If ye have love one to another."  One short verse, sure wish it was longer.  This is a beautiful version by a Chamber Choir with lovely visuals too.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lT1CftoEB-U  I feel this kind of love is what is at the heart of KAS.

Maggie I think praying for the Syrian refugees that have fled that totalitarian regime and now hide in all neighboring countries is a good thing! They huddle in tents in Turkey in winters similar to ours in Canada, I can't imagine that situation.  One KASer here works to supply them with hats, sweaters and blankets, just as we do the suffering children in South Africa. There is truly much to be prayed for.  I want to share a lovely thought I found in an Our Daily Bread book my penpal sent me:

"I know who holds the future,

And I know who holds my hand,

With God things don't just happen---

Everything by Him is planned." ---A. Smith

Oh yes, people have choice to choose good or evil, war or peace etc. but still God can ultimately turn all things to good, here's a verse I think goes with that one: 

Pray on, then, child of God, pray on;

This is your duty and your task.

To God the answering belongs;

Yours is the simpler part---to ask."  --Chisholm

Not saying these verses are perfect, no one is but God, however they gave me pause for thought this morning so I thought I'd share.  :)  Peace to all.  God know each of you by name and you are precious to Him.

Hi Lisa, Bravo!  on the driver's test!  Well done !!!!!  Love to see more of your beautiful hats and squares.  Prayers for your son and your family. 

Grace:  joining you in prayers for Meriam Yehya Ibrahim who got safely out of the Sudan with her newborn daughter, infant son and disabled husband.  Praise God.  Prayers are for all to heal.  Prayers also for the Nigerian girls and their families.  Love to all at KAS.  (still limping but still knitting !)

Thanks Christine for update on the Sudanese lady... lets pray that she will soon be safe in America ....and for the trauma her family must have been through over past months.

It's been a really long time since I've be been on here, I'm still sending
squares and hats, but haven't posted anything.
Been preparing for my road test, just got my drivers liscence on Monday! Had to because my son's school for autism was moving so far away.
I will try harder to come on the site, I have missed it!
Comment by Christine Johnson on July 26, 2014 at 10:11am

Thank you for these reminders Grace. The latest news on the Sudanese prisoner is that she was flown secretly to Italy for onward flight to America, although charges have not been dropped against her. (Full story here :http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/africaandindianocean/suda... ). So we can praise the Lord for that.

Comment by Grace Weir on July 26, 2014 at 7:44am

Be good to continue to pray for the Nigerian schoolgirls who were captured by Boko Haram... also for the lady held in the embassy in south sudan waiting to get to America, but her family are now contesting it.  How these dear people suffer.

Comment by Arlene Guerin on July 26, 2014 at 7:07am

Dear Maggie, I think you are right - that we should pray for the innocents in all wars.  Thak you all for the prayers for my niece and nephew in the upcoming surgeries September 15th.

Blessing to all at KAS.
