We traveled to Bridgeport, CT today to visit with our dear friends, Isaiah & Comfort (photo), in from Ibadan, Nigeria.

I've been to Nigeria 1x to met & present to artists, who want to use their art for God. Nelson's been multiple times. Today we met them at the home of friends from Ghana.

Knowing these are all folks who work with people, I made up some story ropes in African fabric for them, thinking they might be interested in using the idea.

And yes, once they 'got it', they were bubbling with ideas!

• I looked briefly at the Rahab quilt. Yesterday I put it on the work wall, framing it off with strips of white felt, covering up some of the intended length to see what it looked like. Tomorrow I'll have time to work.

  1. I'm so glad that you're sending the story ropes to places where you can't go. It's such a good idea, to provide a way for people to tell their stories and start on the road to healing from whatever troubles them.
    The Rahab quilt is absolutely wonderful. Using broken bits to make up the wall was a stroke of genius.

  2. Thank you for your comments, JO. I am finding ways to multiply what I do.
    Working on the wall right now-with broken bits and pieces.
