Newporters Experience Artists, Crafters, Writers, Singers Emporium

Prospering Christians held their first outdoor festival at Touro Park on June 16, 2012 in an effort to raise money for the Mission to Bangladesh, a mission to plant a church in Bangladesh. .  Many locals and tourists stopped by to see the creations of the talented crafters and writers, which included jewelry, paper products, and hand painted items.

The day turned out to be  the perfect day to hold an outdoor event and it could not have been held at a more picturesque park than Touro Park.  Several of the shoppers inquired as to whether we would return with our wares in the near future.  We will certainly give this some thought and we are planning the next year’s event.

 

Here are a few of the crafters who displayed their ware at the Artists, Crafters, Writers, Singers Emporium on June 16, 2012 at Touro Park in Newport, RI. It was a perfect day for an outdoor event. Many of the visitors were from out of town and several asked if we were going to be there each Saturday. Certainly this is something to consider, since the arts are very popular in the State of Rhode Island.

Thanks to those who turned out for this event, the people in Bangladesh are one step closer to reaching their goal of building a church. Meeting in a home, twenty people would love to have a real church that they could attend. We are still taking donations, as we expand to help other groups of women and children in Pakistan and in India, including an orphanage an a group of women who are making clothing in a cement building with no electricity. These women work diligently to supply food for their families. Many of these women have suffered abuse or were abandoned by their husbands. Left alone with their children, they are trying to provide food, shelter, and education for their children.

If you would like to help the Prospering Christians in this mission, please make a donation at the Global Fellowship website. Click onto the on-line donation button and scroll down to Prospering Christians. Enter in your donation amount and payment information. Your donations are appreciated.
