Mosaics for Missions!

Welcome to my 3rd Annual Mosaic Raffle!  Yep. I'm raffling a new mosaic window to support my upcoming mission trip to Kenya -- and by donating just $10 to the trip, you'll get one entry into the July 13th drawing.    Somebody is taking this original "Palmetto Tree" mosaic home with them!  It might as well be you!

This window is 36" tall and 21.5 " wide -- on a very cool vintage window with original hardware.   The window is lightly sanded to show layers of old cream colored paint.    It intentionally incorporates both red, orange and yellow -- to reflect a very neutral college football bias.    The window took about 20 hours to complete.   The design was hand drawn.   Individual pieces of glass were cracked, applied and grouted to this vintage window.   Mounting hardware will be provided to the winner of this raffle.     It should be hung in a window or on a porch where sunlight is abundant.  

I'll be traveling to Segera, Kenya with my church -- NewSpring -- September 26th - October 5th!
The total cost of the trip is about $3650 plus the cost of immunizations, malaria medication and pocket money for traveling through the airports & souvenirs.   This year, I'm especially excited about my trip because I'm traveling with two very special friends --- Heather Paul and Chrissy Kinney. (You can meet them below - they are wonderful - and our team will be stronger because of their heart for Jesus and His people -- and their love for Africa missions.)    

Heather Paul about to pop an ambien on the 18 hour flight to Kenya in 2011.
It's been longer since Chrissy & I were in Kenya together; celebrating the 4th of July in Nairobi, 2007.  

We'll be getting more details about our work in Segera as the trip gets closer.  We've done medical clinics,  construction projects for schools and fresh water,  home visits,  teaching,   work with special need children and evangelism.   More than anything, we just come with a willingness to love on the children and people of Segera.

If you've got an arm or hand to hold, there's a child who wants it.     Mbogonia, Kenya 2012

No wonder I go back as often as I can.   This will be my 5th trip since 2007.  


The drawing is set for Saturday, July 13th at 8:00 a.m.    The winner is responsible for pick up.  

Mail your donations to Kathy Dublin, 211 Fawnbrook Drive, Greenwood, SC 29646.    And watch facebook on July 13th.   Your name may be pulled!

Here's a look at last year's winners:   Patty & Jim Stafford -- winners of the "Patchwork Tree" Mosaic.

Stay tuned for this year's winner & mail in your donation!  You can't win if you don't enter!
