This year we originally planned to do a clothing boutique for needy women. Once we completed our major ladies spring banquet, we found ourselves totally out of time to make this event happen as planned as working with clothing, making sure we had all sizes needed, etc. would be a daunting task.
We came up with what we felt would be a great alternative. Although there are many ladies outside our our church with strong needs, this year, we felt we wanted to bless the ladies within our own church family that was going through a wilderness season in their lives.
Sis. Sciscoe helped us identify 30 ladies that would benefit from our TIW event this year. Our TIW team came up with the idea to bless these ladies with a gorgeous gift bag of personal toiletry items and a box of cleaning supplies. We also decided that we wanted to provide a nice lunch for them and offer encouragement. A fabulous tea was provided by Michelle Coats and her team.
Sis. Sciscoe and myself were the main speakers along with our new member, Sis. Dallas, former missionary wife and Dixie Christian, leading us in a questionnaire for a talent search.
We are so thankful for the presence of God and His face smiling over this event. I truly feel this ministry will grow and be blessed for years to come.

Our very own Table in the Wilderness. This table was handcrafted by Kenny Pierce of Life Tabernacle. It was auctioned to the highest bidder, Dixie Christian and proceeds went for Ima's Home for Children. Dixie says it has been in her home waiting for it's purpose. Our table represents a nature "wilderness" theme and how God can take the hard seasons in our lives and make them beautiful.
