Blessed friend that I am

There have been very few instances in my life when I immediately "clicked" with people I just met. It's even rarer that I would do that with someone I never actually met in person. But, that is exactly what happened when God allowed my path to cross with that of my dear friend's, Laura Campbell, just a little over a year ago while blog hopping.

As many of you already know, she is the talented artist behind and owner of Layers of Colors Stamps. We met online and I was instantly drawn to her amazing art and love for Christ. By God's good grace, I finally met Laura in person just this summer. And the best part was my family met hers! We were all blessed beyond words with our short time with them. Each member of their dear family (including their sweet dog) touched our hearts in such a deep level that we can only attribute it to God's working in all our lives. He truly gifted us with dear friends in the Campbells and we will never thank Him enough for them.

I'm sharing all this so you can understand how much Laura's friendship has meant to me. And now she's doing something more for me, my family and the people we minister with in Croatia that just leaves me speechless with gratitude to her and our Awesome God for bringing her to my life.

I am so thrilled to announce

The Grand Opening of Laura Kirste Campbell's new line of digital stamps offered exclusively on Squigglefly!

And she is donating 100% of her Squigglefly profits to The Theological Biblical Academy, (TBA), where my husband teaches. TBA trains pastors and church planters who will establish and lead biblical churches in Croatia and other former Yugoslav states. TBA is wholly supported by donations from all over the world. We are truly humbled by this gift and it could not have come at a more opportune time. Thank you so much, Laura and Layers of Color, for your generosity and desire to proclaim Christ in our part of the world. I truly am a blessed friend because of you!

Visit Laura's images on Squigglefly, and you will know why I love her artwork so much.

  4. Nina,
    This is such a great opportunity for your work there in Croatia. I know that it is an answer to your prayers.
    I was a missionary in Zimbabwe for several years and know when there were needs that God always supplied, it is amazing how He does supply and I thank God with you that this door has opened up for you.
    May God richly bless you and your husband and your daughters and the work and ministry that you have there. You have such an opportunity with stamping and crafting to meet others in your ministry. What a great opportunity.

    Blessings,
    Gale
