A Delightful Evening: Celebrating God’s Faithfulness through the Life of Amy Carmichael

Last weekend, Heritage Bible Church had a dinner for those impacted by our Mercy Ministries: widows, widowers, single moms, individuals with deployed spouses, etc. It really was a delightful evening. You may remember the post about God’s Faithfulness that included options for the table decorations. Well, here’s what came out of those musings, thanks to several that helped make my visions a reality:

printed menu cards at each plate setting

Every table had a teapot vase (that matched the China plate settings for the meal) with a custom arrangement of purple, white and yellow flowers and table number flags, twelve tea lights, two streamers with pendants made out of copies of "Great is Thy Faithfulness" sheet music, and folded linen napkins.

A bit of the variety of the flower arrangements, prior to transport to the church for the banquet (we prayed for 50% off flowers at Hobby Lobby and God answered!)

Helpers male and female, young and old, came together to make this event a success and a blessing to many! And we had a blast serving together!

The meal was delicious and accompanied by soft, live piano music while a slideshow of quotes from Amy Carmichael’s writings played on a screen above the front stage. The evening concluded with some humorous skits, sacred special music, and a brief challenge, incorporating the life and testimony of Amy Carmichael. Praise God for His Faithfulness in Amy’s life and each of ours!
