Sewing & Shopping


The countdown to Branson continues: Only 8 short days until we load up and head to the Ozarks for two months. Each and every day is crucial. We covet your prayers. 

And little by little the Christmas ministry is starting to take shape. An important aspect of every Branson show is the costuming and clothing. With 4-5 outfit changes per person, that adds up to a grand total of  50+ individual, coordinated outfits. Whew!

As you may imagine, our shopping & sewing crew have been going full steam ahead for the past two weeks. We're starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel -- and with only 8 days left, that's a huge answer to prayer! Here's a quick glimpse of the process: 


Measuring and sizing.


Sewing.


Re-sizing


And cutting out the pieces.


Our sun room makes for a very cheery sewing factory with lots of natural lighting and fresh air. 

We're also thankful for a timely visit from our friend, Jennifer! She so kindly jumped in to help with the projects at hand -- what a blessing!! 


Delicate touches.


Busy fingers.


We've also made several trips to town for various pieces to the outfits.


Our wonderful sister, Kori, has been helping with shopping & style tips. 
She's so talented!


And every good shopping trip includes a stop at our favorite spot: Amigos! 

And the clock ticks on... 
... stay tuned! 


"Sing to the LORD, bless His name;
Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day."
Psalm 96:2

In Christ,
