Greetings ladies!  I was away visiting my grandson Liam for his 1st birthday for 11 days. It is quite a drive...12 hours so I've spent the first few days back recovering, and the cats helped me by cat-bombing me for the first 2 days...you couldn't sit down without 1 or 2 cats landing on you and purring or walk around without 1 draped on your shoulders.  Sounds like crazy cat lady territory but it is not.  There's only 4 of them.  Friends came in to feed them and clean their cat boxes and cats do get along okay but when we pulled into the driveway at 1:15 a.m. there were cat heads at every window peering at us as if to say "where the bleep have you guys been?!?" and oh didn't we bring back a lovely array of smells for them on our persons and luggage?  2 strange dogs and 4 other cats at our daughter's house plus strange people.  They spent alot of time sniffing everything while we unloaded the car.

I'm glad to say we were able to get to church while away and had a lovely time there. I always enjoy attending church in cities just to see so many people. Our own church is quite small and it's a refreshing if crowded change.  Well it just snowed here.  It melted but it's a hint to start thinking about putting on winter tires. Now I am back from vacation I need to start thinking what to do with all my yarn...my yarn stash has grown again.  So that is my winter project, tackle that.  I can't decide between doing squares, a hat or a sweater right now for KAS.  What is your favorite to do for KAS?  (I too am delighted the surgery finally went ahead for Arlene's niece and nephew)  Love, Jeanne xoxoxoxo

My niece and nephew came through the surgery successfully.  Please pray for their continued recovery.  Thank you all so very much.

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 !)
